Over the past 4 months, the team from Tobar Mhuire has been working in partnership with Youthworks to deliver a personal and social development programme to young men from our sister community of Holy Cross, Ardoyne. This has included looking at skills for effective living; exploring prejudice and discrimination, and taking part in a service project in the grounds of Tobar Mhuire every Sunday afternoon.
The latest phase of the programme saw us visit New York; Pittsburg and Washington, where we were hosted by the Amizade organisation. We shall tell you more about this exciting project shortly, but the trip to the States saw the young men visit Dan Rooney, owner of the Pittsburg Steelers; meet homeless people in Washington; climb 50 foot wooden towers; participate in the Good Friday Stations around the streets of New York and generally act as ambassadors for their home parish. We are deeply indebted to Suzanne from the Amizade team for her organisation of the week and for her wonderful calming company! As I said, more information about this project will be online soon. In the meantime, enjoy the video show!
