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.

for those involved in Ministries and Committees took place on Thursday, December 8th at 7.30pm, beginning with a prayer service followed by a social evening in the Presentation Primary School Hall .
