magis_launch_01Magis Ireland (formerly Slí Eile), was launched on Sunday, 26 Sept by  the Irish Jesuit Provincial Tom Layden. He said that Magis Ireland reflects a shift in vision whereby the organisation is now linked into an international  Jesuit ministry to young people all over the world.  A number of young adults associated with Slí Eile over the years, spoke movingly about how the organisation, with its committed staff, had helped them through struggles with their faith. It also gave them the courage and the opportunity to get involved personally in  issues of social justice, resulting in their volunteering work in Zambia, Jamica and Colombia. Padraig Swan, Director of Magis Ireland, said, ” We are about community, providing a safe place for young people to explore personal  issues around faith and justice – hence our motto- ‘more for your life, more for our world’.”
