Kevin McLaughlin OMI Joining Ecological Education Initiative in Ireland
June 14th, 2013
Fr. Kevin McLaughlin OMI, a former intern at the JPIC Office in Washington, DC, has joined an Ecological education initiative in Ireland. The initiative is located at the An Tobar Retreat Centre owned by the Spiritan congregation just outside of Dublin, Ireland.
Fr. Kevin will join the staff, and hopes to develop an ecological ministry by setting up an ecological reflection group and preparing courses on the New Story and other themes in ecology and spirituality.
Some of the upcoming projects include starting a kitchen garden, offering allotments to people who would like to garden, developing a nature trail, restoring the woodlands, planting trees, cleaning out the polluted pond and developing.
