John, the Executive Director of Focus Infinity Intercultural Outreach Network, a not-for-profit Christian organization behind the project.“The Mosaic Course will empower Christians to effectively and respectfully share the uniqueness of their faith in a multicultural society,” said Joe Gallagher, the Operational Director of Brehm Center at Fuller Theological Seminary.“We think this project comes at a time when the church in the postmodern pluralistic west needs some practical knowledge, encouragement and insight to help understand and engage better with people from other religions,” said Dr. Greg Waybright, lead pastor of Lake Avenue Church in Pasadena. Brehm Center and Lake Avenue Church are partnering with Focus Infinity in hosting the event.There will a question and answer period and book signing at this free event.Lake Avenue Church is located at 393 North Lake Avenue, Pasadena.last_img read more

Up to 100 children carers in Limerick

first_imgEmail Linkedin NewsLocal NewsUp to 100 children carers in LimerickBy admin – August 9, 2012 648 Advertisement Facebook UP to 100 Limerick children under the age of 15,  are carers for a relative. An estimated 60 children are acting as carers in county Clare. Caring for Carers, the organisation which represents 109 carers’ groups across the country, has identified 4,288 carers under the age of 15 nationally, using the latest figures from the Census. Of these, statistics suggest that around 100 are based in Limerick city and county. Mary McMahon, CEO of Caring for Carers says this is the likely figure but stressed that the objective is to identify them as individuals so they can be offered support.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “The problem is that they are not always visible because they often don’t think of themselves as carers,” Mary told the Limerick Post.“We have raised the issue with the schools because teachers may become aware of them. If students seem to be under pressure, maybe they are falling behind in schoolwork because they are tired or because of pressures at home”.Pointing out that in neighbouring Clare where the organisation has its headquarters, there are 60 children in this position, she welcomed the new National Carers Strategy.“As far back as 1988 the Department of Health expressed its desire to enable older people to live with dignity and to be cared for as long as possible in their own homes and 24 years on, the Government has produced a strategy that we feel provides the framework,” she said. However, Renee Geary of the Limerick branch of Caring for Carers, said that while the evidence is there in the census, her group has not encountered carers in the  age group of under 15 .According to the care group, the youngsters may simply be taking on more housework because there is a disabled or elderly person in the home or they may have a bigger share of duties – for instance, if the person in need of care is a parent who requires bathing or feeding. “There are a lot of people who don’t identify as carers because they are caring for a family member or a spouse. They just see it as being their duty,” concluded Renee.  center_img Twitter WhatsApp Print Previous articleEleven deaths on farms this year lead to call for vigilanceNext articleMayor asked to take 50% cut adminlast_img read more

Responding to Irish Water’s announcement that it would proceed with an application to An Bord Pleanála, Deputy Nolan stated that “the submission is premature as there are too many gaps in the research and the issue of existing water leaks has not been adequately addressed”. The €1.3 billion scheme proposes to take water from the Parteen basin and use a 170km pipeline to pump it to Dublin and major Midland towns.
