They visited the JUST Ballymun project and the Jesuit Refugee Service. Afterwards they went to learn about the various operations that call Leeson Street their home: the Messenger, Sacred Space, the Jesuit Communication Centre, and Religious News Network (RNN) – so they received a thorough introduction to the work being done both in traditional and in new media. Feedback was very positive, and the students commented that it was an eye-opener for them to see faith so obviously in action.
