‘Family Day’ at Knock Shrine; Saturday 8th April 2017

March 28th, 2017

On Saturday 8th April, ‘Celebrating Family; Preparing for World Meeting of Families 2018’ will be held at Knock Shrine. This will be a day-long event, the main purpose of which is to invite families to the National Shrine and help them to prepare for the World Meeting of Families next year. It is also an important aspect of trying to link in with Pope Francis’ message of renewal of faith in Ireland and of the family. The programme for the day will consist of a number of talks, including a presentation from keynote speaker Fr Timothy Bartlett, Secretary General for the World Meeting of Families, public discussion from a number of families who will speak of their own personal experiences and the challenges of living as a Catholic family today, and a range of workshops and activities for children (aged 5 years and over) and young people attending. For further information, contact Knock Shrine on (094) 93 88100 or log on to www.knockshrine.ie

Youth Retreat Day

March 21st, 2017

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!!!
