Bishop says Limerick is not living up to its obligations to…

first_imgFacebook Bishop Brendan LeahyBishop Brendan Leahy has said that Limerick is not living up to its obligations to support asylum seekers, especially in terms of their living conditions.Addressing the congregation at Raheen parish in Limerick this morning, Bishop Leahy said that although there are a number of excellent local groups supporting migrants and refugees, “in some respects, not least in terms of living conditions, we are not living up to our obligation to support asylum seekers”.In his New Year’s ‘World Day of Peace’ homily, he said that migrants need to be allowed to participate fully in Irish society and we need to be particularly vigilant to avoid exploitation of women and children.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “I am pleased the Limerick Social Services Council, set up by the Diocese, manages to offer support to migrants. There are others who also do good work, such as Doras Luimni. Our schools do great work in welcoming, protecting, promoting and integrating.“But we can’t deny there are many migrants and refugees among us looking for homes, friendship, help.“Asylum seekers are living in dire circumstances not far from us. For each of us, personally but also as a parish and as a diocese, Pope Francis’ message comes as a pressing invitation,” he added.Bishop Leahy said that the Pope’s four pronged strategy – welcoming, protecting, promoting and integrating – for addressing the refugee and migrant crisis internationally is equally applicable to us in Ireland.“This year, Pope Francis has chosen a topic very dear to his heart, a topic about which he often speaks and acts – the theme of migrants and refugees. They are constantly in his prayers. He reminds us there are over 250 million migrants worldwide, of whom 22.5 million are refugees. In Ireland we have a particular sensitivity to the theme of migration, emigration,” he said.“We need to do all we can to welcome migrants.  We need to be on the look out to make sure migrants, especially women and children, are not exposed to risks or being exploited.“In Ireland we need to support the human development of migrants and refugees, ensuring access to all levels of education for children and young people.  This will enable them not only to cultivate and realize their potential, but also equip them better in their turn to go out and encounter others in a spirit of dialogue rather than confrontation.“To welcome migrants means we also need to know how to allow them participate fully in our society. It is to the benefit of us all.”More news on society here Changes to the Student Support Scheme for people living in Direct Provision Limerick schools urged to get involved in STEM challenge Email Students in Limerick colleges to benefit from more than €1.5M funding to assist with online learning WhatsApp Advertisement TAGSAsylum seekersBishop Brendan LeahyDoras LuimníeducationexploitationhomilylimerickLimerick Social Services Councilnew yearPope FrancisRaheenrefugeesschoolssocietyWorld Day of Peace COVID-19 volunteerism is a glimpse of what the future can be for church and community center_img Print Previous articleLimerick city building on dangerous structures listNext articleMan due in court over County Limerick murder Editor Limerick social entrepreneurs honoured for their work in response to covid-19 Linkedin Twitter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR NewsSocietyBishop says Limerick is not living up to its obligations to migrantsBy Editor – January 1, 2018 2816 Education and Training Board serves up award winning standardslast_img read more

first_imgUmphrey’s McGee is hosting up-and-coming jam heroes Spafford on a number of dates this Winter and Spring. The two bands teamed up in Richmond, Virginia last night at The National for their first of two nights. Both bands are known for their compositional fluidity, seamless transitions, and extended jamming, making for a great pair all around.Umphrey’s set started off with a rare combination of “Mantis Ghetts” > “Mantis” into “Thin Air” after starting with “Andy’s Last Beer.” The first set also included the 6th ever version of “Draconian.” Second set also brought an “In The Flesh” > “Another Brick In The Wall” Pink Floyd pair from The Wall, before jamming into “Ringo”, “Tribute to the Spinal Shaft”, and “The Fuzz”, possibly hinting at a theme for the night’s setlist considering the day’s earlier events with the Inauguration. The set ended with “Final Word” back into “Mantis”, before returning for a “Glory” > “Kid Charlemagne” encore.Similarly, Spafford opened their set with “America” to honor the historical day.Thanks to taper opsopcopolis, you can enjoy both shows below: Check out Spafford’s tour schedule below, including all dates with Umphrey’s McGee and more![photo by Phierce Photo at The Tabernacle]last_img read more
