BallymunAs part of their ‘Faith in action’ religious education programme, a group of 18 Transition Year students from O’Carolan College, Nobber, Co. Meath, spent last Friday morning digging in with the Ballymun Global Action Project (GAP), on an environmental project at St. Joseph’s Primary School. Slí Eile, the Jesuit Centre for Young Adults invited this group of students to roll up their sleeves and link in with GAP as part of the Transition Year programme of active faith formation and social concern. Afterwards Slí Eile JVC volunteers living and working in Ballymun welcomed the students to lunch and a discussion of their respective experiences. What had they learned? The message for students was clear – Faith is not only about personal wellbeing and prayer. It is about action for and with others for the greater good.
