The development of the commitment of All Hallows College to poverty reduction is recounted. From its founding in 1842, All Hallows was focused on training seminarians for ministry in impoverished areas worldwide. Faced with a decline in candidates for the priesthood, it began offering lay ministry training in the early 1980s, with a special emphasis on the home mission in Ireland. It became renowned for its pastoral ministry education. The college instituted a justice/service element in all its courses and has created a postgraduate program in Social Justice and Public Policy The genesis of the latter, its requirements, and goals are described.
