Conversations About Mission – Domestic Violence
Dublin and Glendalough Council for Mission is holding a number of Conversations about Mission on zoom starting on Wednesday May 19. They would love you to join them.
The conversations will focus on enabling churches to reach out into their communities in a Covid /Post Covid Society. Each month practitioners will speak briefly about their area of expertise and participants will have the opportunity to explore how they can take action in their own contexts.
The first Conversation about Mission, on May 19 at 8pm, will focus on domestic violence: ‘When Home is not a Safe Place – Reaching those experiencing domestic Violence during Covid’.
Contributors will be Jacqueline Armstrong the Mothers’ Union’s Faith and Policy coordinator and Kelley Bermingham, the Community Officer of St Patrick’s Cathedral.
Jacqueline Armstrong will talk about the All–Ireland Mothers’ Union activities in highlighting gender based violence, and, in particular, domestic abuse. Kelley Bermingham will talk about the work of CritiCall, an initiative to support people emerging from domestic violence during the Covid–19 pandemic.
Jacqueline and Kelley will also answer questions from participants who seek to understand how they can take action locally.

The second Conversation about Mission will take place in June when the Council for Mission will explore: ‘Hidden Pain – how to reach out to those experiencing grief during Covid–19’.
