On Friday Mrs Bowen and I were privileged to meet Barry and Margaret Mizen MBEs at the Diocese Leadership Conference.

Barry and Margaret are the parents of Jimmy Mizen, who was tragically murdered on 10th May 2008, the day after his 16th birthday. Following his death, Barry and Margaret boldly asserted that their Catholic faith provided them with a source of inner peace by guiding them away of seeking revenge. Since Jimmy’s death the couple founded the charity For Jimmy, formerly known as the Jimmy Mizen Foundation. For Jimmy works to make young people safer by building a legacy of peace in Jimmy’s memory. They do this by creating unique projects that take young people ‘beyond the school gates’. Their message is one that reaches the hearts and minds of young people and staff in both Primary and Secondary Schools locally and nationally.
