Mercy International Association is pleased to announce virtual retreat opportunities during 2021.
While it has not been possible to open the Centre in Dublin due to COVID-19 restrictions, MIA would like to invite all within our Mercy community to gather virtually for events, retreats, and workshops. Questions about the events listed below can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Three of the events offered below are presented by Mercy Global Action. These Virtual Advocacy Workshops are open to members of the Mercy World who wish to engage in advocacy for systemic change at local, national, and international levels. The workshops will focus on the Mercy Justice Advocacy Approach, which is rooted in the experience of Earth and people, theological reflection, as well as tools and tactics for advocacy and action. While the core of each workshop will be the same, we will give special attention to different priority issues.
