Our citizenship is in heaven,
--Raymond Lennon is a graduate of Queen’s University, Belfast and has been pursuing doctoral studies there. He was been Departmental Head in Corpus Christi College, probably in one of the most strife torn areas of Belfast. He was Student Counsellor for the Freshman year. He was a close friend and collaborator with Fr Alec Reid, the acclaimed Peace Priest of Clonard Monastery.Stemming from his Youth and Community work during the worst days of the Troubles he was approached to assist programs designed to help United States students learn from the Peace Process in Belfast. Consequently, for the past 10 years he has been coordinating and developing immersion programs for US College and High School students. He has worked closely with the John Carroll University faculty and students in Cleveland. He has also developed crucial political and former paramilitary contacts in Belfast. He is convinced that what is learnt here will assist Americans to become peace builders at home and elsewhere.
