Children with arthritis can find the most simple tasks like opening their school bag, writing their homework or walking up the stairs extremely painful. We believe that kids with arthritis are superheros because of the challenges they have to overcome every day.
At Arthritis Ireland we work with these children and their families to develop their superpowers, helping them to see a brighter future! Support us by selling Jasper pins and raising vital funds during October and November. Contact Louise today on 6470209/email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Courses at All Hallows
The Pathways Course: Have you ever thought about exploring your faith? Or wished that you could broaden your understanding of your faith? Perhaps you are feeling challenged by questions your children or grandchildren are asking about God and the meaning of faith for which you feel you have ‘no answers’. Perhaps you are feeling challenged by all that is happening in the Irish Church right now. If so, Pathways may be the course for you.
Pathways is a course for adults who wish to explore their faith. There are no exams on this course, no written work. The only qualification is an openness to listening to others.
For more information please phone 01 8373745 or email us at email@example.com
