Mairead Maguire- Feb 2021

Bio:
Mairead grew up in a poor family in Belfast. In addition to her office job, she devoted a great deal of time in her youth to charity work in the Catholic organization Legion of Mary. That gave her a good basis on which to develop the nonviolent strategy of the Community of Peace People, which brought together thousands of people in protest marches and confidence-building measures among the grass roots in 1976 and 1977.

Mairead Corrigan did not give up hope even when the Peace People lost nearly all their support in the late 1970s. She kept up her local peace work with admirable strength.

Bio:
Mgr. Bruno-Marie Duffé is the secretary of the newly created Dicastery Promoting Integral Human Development. This Dicastery of the Roman Curia combined the work of four Pontifical Councils established following the Second Vatican Council: Justice and Peace, Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerant People, Pastoral Assistance to Health Care Workers, and Cor Unum. Within the Curia, FIAMC is therefore subordinate to this Dicastery (and not to the Dicastery for the Laity, Family and Life).

Mgr. Bruno-Marie Duffé, a French professor from Lyon, with long experience in human rights and relief work, was one of the keynote speakers during the FIAMC Congress in Zagreb, where Prof. Dr. Bernard Ars was elected as the new president.
