WHEN COMPASSION LEADS TO CHANGE:
Richard Moore spoke in St. John’s Church, on Monday 13th March at 7.30pm
“I consider him not only my friend, but also my hero. Why? Because while I talk about forgiveness, Richard Moore lives it.” His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
As a ten year old child, Richard Moore was blinded by a rubber bullet during the Troubles in Northern Ireland. Just as his life emerged as a triumph out of tragedy through his experiences of compassion in the face of challenges, Richard’s founding of the charity Children in Crossfire draws on his vision to work towards building a better world for those caught in the crossfire of global poverty, injustice and inequality.
Congratulations to the new Rose of Tralee, Maggie Rose McEldowney, who was among the Roses, their families and escorts who joined with St. John’s Community for Mass at 10.30am on Sunday August 21st. We congratulate Maggie and all the Roses on representing themselves, their families and communities so well. We welcome them and all visitors and pray that their visit was joyful and memorable.
