Launch of “The Legacy of Missionaries Lives On”

Guest Speaker: Senator Rónán Mullen
RSVP by 6 October to Matt Moran at firstname.lastname@example.org
The book contains a miscellany of views and perspectives by Irish and indigenous missionaries, and by leaders of church and state, academics, historians, diplomats, media personnel, and development specialists who have experienced the work of Irish missionaries. Reflecting on the great Irish missionary movement, it illustrates the geographical shift of Christianity to the Global South where a vibrant new movement is continuing the legacy. Exploring the role of faith in development and the work on advocacy, social justice, and climate change by faith-inspired organisations at the UN, the book also explains how twinning is becoming a new human bridge between parishes in Ireland and the Global South, as well as the increasing role of lay missionary volunteers.
