THE WEEK OF GUIDED PRAYER

We are offering our parish Advent retreat in daily life from Monday, 28th November to Sunday, 4th December. It is a beautiful opportunity to pray with the Scriptures and to talk to somebody about it.

Both in-person and online meetings with prayer guides available. You do not need any prior experience! We will initially meet on Monday 28th November at 7.30pm in the Church, where you will get all the information you need for the week. We will conclude on Sunday, 4th December with 7.30pm Mass.

Just as our bodies need food, our souls need time with God to be fed. Will you join us this Advent for the retreat? A wonderful adventure you do not want to miss.

You can sign up at the reception or email us at sfx@jesuit.ie.
