Irish Summer Institute 2008 - August 18-31

This summer, Father Bob Hayes of the Diocese of San Jose will participate in the 12th

Bi-Annual Irish Summer Institute, a unique travel and study experience conducted by the Presbyterian Committee for Northern Ireland and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

The experience will begin in Dublin with a study of the religious and political background of "The Troubles" in Northern Ireland and will then continue north to Belfast. The trip involves meetings with local leaders involved in the peace process to gain a greater understanding of the Irish situation. Participants are asked to utilize knowledge and insights gained from their experiences in Northern Ireland in order to commit themselves to becoming post-trip peacemakers in their own churches and communities.
