Peter McVerry

Fr. Peter McVerry SJ has been working with Dublins young homeless for more than 30 years. During this time he has campaigned tirelessly for the rights of these young people. In 1979 he set up a hostel for homeless boys. Four years later he established the Arrupe Society, now known as the Peter McVerry Trust, to provide accommodation and support for young people who are homeless.

Here he explains to Miriam Gormally how his view of being a Catholic has been radically challenged and changed over the years through his work with the homeless.
