Margaret Mizen & The Jimmy Mizen Foundation
On 2nd March 2012, students at Sacred Heart of Mary were very fortunate and privilaged to hear Margaret Mizen speak openly and honestly about her life experiences, including the death of her 16 year old son Jimmy.
Margaret spoke about the legacy of peace that her family have been building, founded on her Catholic faith. She suggested some ways in which we can all be involved in the Mizen's aim for a legacy of peace. Please take some time to read more about their story and the projects they are involved in.
Margaret would also like some feedback. If there are any students who would like to write their reflections on the talk to share with Margaret, please email them to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Students are arranging collections for the work of the Jimmy Mizen Foundation over the coming weeks.
