APT/AMRI (Act to Prevent Trafficking) celebrated Mass on national TV, Monday, 8 February 2021, to honour the feast of St. Jospehine Bakhita, the International day of Prayer and Awareness against Human Trafficking.
Fr. Pat Murphy, SPS, Liz Byrne, IBVM and Mary Ryan, RSM shared the order of the Mass and the beautiful and appropriate fabric draped over the ambo was donated by Eilis Coe, RSC. Due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, there were limited numbers allowed to gather but we appreciate that thanks to the national airwaves, we will have had an audience of +45,000, which is an extensive reach in order to not only raise awareness but also to extend our invitation to others to join us in the work to end human trafficking and exploitation.
