Fr. Peter McVerry Talk, Monday, 29 November at 12:00pm

Fr. Peter McVerry will talk about the Housing Crisis.  Some of the questions he will look at are:

  • Why does a wealthy country like Ireland have so many homeless people?
  • Why does the number of homeless children just keep on going up and up?
  • How can we respond to homelessness, both individually and as a society?

Register once to join this talk and all other events during Social Justice Week. 

Coming Up tomorrow:

Migrants and Refugees:  Tuesday, 30 November at 1:00pm

Social Justice week has been an annual event on the Tallaght Campus for many years. It is now extended across all campuses to bring together students and staff across the many campuses to raise awareness around Social Justice Issues. Our committee comprises the members of the Pastoral Care Team and Student Union.

We have set up a webpage that will give links to each day's activities and an opportunity to hear the talks, panel discussion and watch our students who have created videos about their lives and interests. Watch this space for more information on our themes this week: World's Aids Day

  • Domestic Abuse Awareness
  • Persons with Disabilities Day.

It also affords us to get involved in the fundraiser for the Peter McVerry Trust and the online SVP Collection.
