‘Quiet Days for Busy People’ Day Retreats

 Saturday 30th March:‘She has done what she could….’

 ‘She has done what she could: she has anointed my body beforehand for its burial ’(Mk 14:8)

 It is such a comfort to hear that we have done all we could in a difficult situation. We are invited to listen, explore, pray and enter more deeply into the mystery of the Passion Narrative as revealed through the anointing of Jesus by a nameless woman. This will be done through guided meditation, input, quiet time and ritual. There will also be an opportunity of a one to one conversation with one of the Prayer Guides to facilitate the process further and enable the graces of the day to translate into ordinary living.

 Facilitator: Sr. Moya Hegarty OSU Location: Taizé Room, Prayer Centre Time: 10.30am to 4pm Cost €30 (including lunch at Knock House Hotel)

Saturday 27th April: ‘Finding God in the Mess’

In the busyness and messiness of life we can often get the feeling of being disconnected from ourselves and even from God, as if God could only be with us if, and when, we straighten everything out. However, the good news is that God is with us in the mess and we can adopt principles of living that enable us to find God in the mess. To explore this further, join us in Knock for a day of quiet reflection. With guided meditation, time to listen and reflect.Take the opportunity of a one to one conversation with one of our Prayer Guides to gain a deeper awareness of God’s presence with us always. Facilitated by Jim Deeds Location: Taizé Room, Prayer Centre Time: 10.30am to 4pm Cost €30 (including lunch at Knock House Hotel)

Jesuit Week / Week of Ignatian Spirituality:  28th July – 4th August

Your Life, Your Story, Your Pathway to God’

God takes an interest in each one of us, in every life – a personal interest in the ordinary daily realities and in our deepest longings. Each of us has a story to tell and in that story God is present, calling us to listen and learn. Prayer is about listening as well as speaking. It doesn’t do away with the struggles of life, but it helps us to see that the One who created us wants to guide us and to give us courage and a sense of peace. This is what the Jesuit way of prayer is all about. The team for the week will include Terry Howard SJ and Brian Grogan SJ. For more information, contact the Prayer Centre:(094) 93 88100 /E: prayerguidance@knockshrine.ie
