Knock Faith Renewal Spring/Summer Programme 2019


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:
