Misean Cara


News came through today that the Irish Missionary Resource Service (IMRS) has been rebranded as Misean Cara. This is a Gaelic word meaning “friend of the mission”. There is already discussion on some of the Irish language message boards as to whether the translation is grammatically defensible. Probably not. But it does make sense and communicates well as a descriptor. It is a bold move and suggests the dynamism of the organisation.

On a related note, a Christian Brother, Declan Power, has been elected to the Board of Misean Cara. This appointment is good from an ERI perspective. It provides us with new opportunities to link with Misean Cara in the important work of engaging collaboratively in the promotion of social justice in the developing world.
