The Ulster Project of Greater Milwaukee is a collaborative effort with Northern Ireland that brings teens ages 14-16 together to promote trust, respect, tolerance and understanding among future leaders. With the original focus to demonstrate how different faith traditions could live in harmony, it has expanded to also focus on leadership, peace, and justice. Joining us to discuss the program are host family coordinator Colleen McGuire Schmitz, and 2018 host teens Anna Gillespie and Liam More O'Ferral. We are also excited to welcome dancers from the Kinsella Academy of Irish Dance for a performance!

The Ulster Project's Discover Your Irish/Family Fun Night is happening tonight, March 1 from 5pm to 10pm at St. Pius X (2506 N Wauwatosa Avenue). For more information on the Ulster Project of Greater Milwaukee, visit
