Youth Retreat Day

retreat-day-march-2017-027Our youth retreat day for Faith Friends leaders and the young people taking part in the Pope John Paul II Awards this year, took place on Wednesday 15th March.

The group travelled to Faughart in Co Louth, to the Shrine of St Bridget, where they enjoyed a day in beautiful spring sunshine, walking, talking and praying together. The first stop was at the High Cross in Monasterboice, where Fr Paul spoke to them of the importance of taking time out to renew the spirit, especially in busy and stressful times. Mr Breslin led a guided meditation in the oratory in Faughart, which was more than effective in relaxing members of the group! We spent some time in reflection on the two programmes, and how the school and parish could possibly work together to help nourish the faith of these young people who are making such an important contribution to school and parish life, and how we could adapt the Faith Friends programme from their suggestions.

Sincere thanks to Mr Breslin and Mr Kavanagh from Scoil Mhuire who led the retreat with Moira Fogarty, Trish O’Neill and Fr Paul.

A very productive day!!!
