About this Event

Purpose

To give an opportunity to critically evaluate self-awareness; care for ourselves and the earth; give a sense of what people can do when included or given a voice.

Speakers

Dr Kevin Hargaden is the social theologian and director of the Jesuit Centre for Faith and Justice, a research centre based in Dublin 1 dedicated to considering contemporary questions of social justice in the light of the gospel, with a particular focus on environmental care, housing and homelessness, and penal policy. He is an elder in the Presbyterian Church in Lucan. His most recent book is a theological examination of the death of the Celtic Tiger entitled Christian Ethics in a Neoliberal Age. He lives in Maynooth with his wife, Claire, a prison chaplain and their toddler son, Eamonn.

Paul Frecklington is the Project Coordinator of ARD Family Resource Centre, Doughiska, Galway, which was found to be the most culturally diverse community in the country (Project Lifecourse 2015). Prior to current pandemic restrictions ARD Family Resource Centre received over 1,500 visitors per week to take part in over 80 courses/classes/events per week. Paul recently completed a thesis entitled “The Importance and Potential of a Collaborative Family Support Approach Within a Super Diverse Community”. It is considered that the data and narratives that Paul has unique access to presents an ideal opportunity for further research and Paul has now three years into a PhD Research Project entitled “Parent-Adolescent Relationships in a Super Diverse Setting: An Exploratory Study.”
