Be the Change Symposium

The Oblate sponsored Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation (JPIC) Group in Dublin has run a number of 'Be the Change' symposia over the past few years, including one for young people, given by young people, at Bluebell, Dublin 12 in March 2011. The Symposium is an interactive transformational workshop that inspires participants to play a role in creating a new future: an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling, and socially just human presence on this planet. Our most recent presentation of the symposium was to a group of parishioners at St Joseph's Parish, Colwyn Bay on Sunday, 26 February 2012. If your parish or justice group is interested in hosting a 'Be the Change' symposium, you can contact us through this web site.
