This course aims to create a space for reflection on how mercy is both experienced and expressed in our lives, in the Scriptures, in our Church and in the work of Trócaire. The course consists of four sessions over four consecutive weeks, and is particularly suitable to the seasons of Advent or Lent. Each session takes 60-80 minutes.
Just Faith is an exciting programme devised by Trócaire in co-operation with the Offices of Evangelisation and Ecumenism in the Archdiocese of Dublin.
The programme encourages young people to engage with their faith in a personal and global context.
'The Cry of the Earth' is a Pastoral Reflection on Climate Change from the Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference, 2014.
To accompany this, Trócaire has developed 'GLAS', a pastoral resource.
‘Action at a global level, as well as every individual action which contributes to integral human development and global solidarity, helps to construct a more sustainable environment and, therefore, a better world.’
