The focus of the work of Restoration Ministries is healing and reconciliation in the Irish context and beyond - to those who have been in any way diminished or trapped in their own personal lives or through their communal history. From its base at Restoration House, through a ministry of reconciliation, healing, hospitality and prayer, Restoration Ministries seeks to provide a place of safety where people can tell their story and be heard, a place to help people develop a vision and a place where people can feel welcomed and loved. Restoration Ministries seeks to be an image of unity in diversity, to be an effective inspiration beyond its size and to see others develop a ministry of reconciliation.
