Each one of us, at some time or another, experience dark times in our lives. As we journey through Holy week towards Easter we see the hurt and shame transformed by the light of God’s love.



‘New Life’ Saturday April 28th

As we look around us we can see how winter has given way to spring, how what looked like death is now bursting with new life. The whole of creation reveals God to us, we just need to slow down and become aware of his presence with us.

Jesuit Week / Week of Ignatian Spirituality


Your Life, Your Story, Your Pathway to God’ July 23rd - 31st

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. This week will be facilitated by Eddie Costello & Dermot Mansfield Contact (094) 9388100/ email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
