Pastoral and Liturgy Resources for Parishes and Community Groups

 
All of Trócaire's work, here in Ireland as well as overseas, is informed by Catholic Social Teaching (CST). Guided by Gospel principals, we use CST to bring social justice issues alive in parishes, classrooms and community groups across the island of Ireland.
 
In this section you'll find a range of resources for use in your parish or community group, designed to help bring together faith and action on social justice issues.
 

2015 Lenten Liturgy, plus useful supplementary pastoral and liturgy resources are available for download here. This Lent we introduce you to Mahlet, who lives in a community in Ethiopia experiencing the serious impacts of climate change. 

Contact the Parishes Team if you would like to request a Trócaire speaker for your parish mass or community group event during Lent.

Rediscovering Mercy
rediscovering mercy

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
Just Faith

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. 

 

Cry of the Earth: A Pastoral Reflection on Climate Change

Cry of the Earth

'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.’
