A MAN who was blinded by a bullet at age 10 and later founded a charity will give a talk this month at St John’s Church.

The ‘Tralee Lenten Justice Talk: When Compassion Leads to Change’ was launched on Friday at the church on Castle Street.

On Monday, March 13, Richard Moore will speak on his experience of healing, forgiveness and the transforming power of compassion.

As a ten year old child, Richard Moore was blinded by a rubber bullet during the troubles in Northern Ireland. Richard’s founding of the charity Children in Crossfire draws on his vision to work towards building a better world for children caught in the crossfire of global poverty, injustices and in-equality.

This event, starting at 7.30pm, is being hosted by St. John’s parish and the Diocese of Kerry’s Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation committee. Entrance is free and all are welcome.
