Not Just an Hour on Sunday

BY DAN DE LEON
@ VOL 3 ON JUN 02, 2015

A pastor's work is never finished. With the socio-religious landscape being altered dramatically by falling church attendance, the rise of social media, and one's faith and spirituality no longer being determined by an hour of worship on a Sunday morning, the demands of pastoral ministry are more complex than ever. Reflecting on ten years of ministry, Dan De Leon gives a glimpse into his experiences as a pastor with hopes of dispelling the myth that ministers only work for an hour on Sundays.

May 22nd

BY COLM O'GORMAN
@ VOL 7 ON APR 22, 2015

Colm O'Gorman, has worked as a waiter, a barman, a charity fundraiser, a hair salon manager, a security guard, a coat check attendant, a radio dj, a cook, a restaurant manager, a mini cab driver and as a psychotherapist. Arguably our highest profile speaker Colm O’Gorman is now a leading social justice commentator, director of Amnesty International Ireland and founder of One In Four Ireland.

As a teenager Colm was sexually abused by a priest. In 1998 he launched a case against the Roman Catholic Church. He went on to sue the bishop of his home diocese and the pope. In 2002 he took part in a BBC documentary telling his story, which resulted in the resignation of the bishop of Ferns Dr Brendan Comiskey.

As director of Amnesty International Ireland he is currently focussing his efforts on the Yes campaign for Marriage Equality, which was launched on 22 March.

“May 22 will be an historic date,” Colm said when launching the campaign. “It is a day when we all, as Irish people, have a chance to stand for a Republic of equals. A day when we can more fully realise equality for all of our people… Love does not discriminate, and neither should our laws.”
