A discussion forum on putting faith into practice was held in St Mark’s Church, Parish of Ballymacash, during Holy Week.
The annual Seize the Day! Forum was chaired by Richard McReynolds, and panel members were: Mrs Rosamund Bennett, Chief Executive of Christian Aid Ireland; Mr Jeffrey Donaldson, MP for Lagan Valley; Mr Barkley Campbell, former Head of Sixth Form, Laurelhill College; and the Rev Dr Bert Tosh , Cleric and Broadcaster.
The Forum took the format of the BBC’s Question Time, and the panel considered the following questions:
Statistical evidence suggests a steady exodus of young people from Northern Ireland to Great Britain and further afield. Are we educating our young people for export?
After the members of the Panel had an opportunity to respond to each question, the audience was invited to make comments and ask supplementary questions.
