ROC Lower Shankill
The St James ROC Conversation took place in November 2018 as part of ROC’s work with the Department for Communities under the NI Executive’s Tackling Paramilitarism Programme. Since then the Action Group have focused on developing stronger working relationships amongst faith-based groups, churches, schools and statutory agencies in the area with new groups working together. The Action Group have held coffee mornings in the parish hall with pupils from St Kevin’s Primary and St Louise’s making and serving refreshments (highly recommend the lemon drizzle cake!) to parishioners. There are plans to open an afterschool kids and club. In summer 2020, the Action Group will work with the ROC Lower Falls Action Group on the West Belfast School Uniform Project.
