Justice and Peace has a youth worker who likes to keep busy!


The new Justice and Peace Youth and Communications worker, Dervila McMorrow

Dervila McMorrow joined the Justice and Peace Commission at the beginning of October to further our work in schools and youth groups. From Donegal, Dervila  spent last year working with the Vincentians in homeless projects in Salford, and has a vision of how young people can contribute to making their world a better place through practical schemes such as Fairtrade, and service projects.

With an MA  in Pastoral Administration from All Hallows College Dublin, Dervila has seen the ‘Francis Effect’ on young people, and is keen to turn Catholic Social Teaching into a reality for them.  Already we hear her frequent mantra ‘I like to keep busy!’. In 3 weeks she has visited 3 deaneries, helped with one schools day and attended a national Fairtrade conference. So do contact her for talks and workshops in schools, youth and confirmation groups, at justice@rcdow.org.uk
