Each November affords us a time to pause, reflect and remember all those who have died and gone before us into the loving arms of God.
This November, we are offering you the opportunity to join with others, reflect on our loss and the journey of learning to let go.
‘Resting in the Arms of God’
Day Retreat with Deirdre Ní Chinnéide
“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.” – Ecclesiastes 3
November brings an invitation to reflect on love and loss as we remember our loves ones and times of letting go.
This retreat offers time to meet and be with others, sharing a faith journey and pilgrimage in and through the heart of the Celtic Christian tradition. Resting in the arms of God guiding us towards a time of change, we will explore the call to listen through scripture, music, reflection and prayer.
This retreat is now fully booked.

Healing Prayer for those in Grief
God, do not let my feelings overwhelm me.
During moments of anguish, touch my heart with courage,
my soul with your compassion, and with your love to comfort me.
Despite my pain, let me know healing is occurring.
Let me hear often that you are always with me.
God, today is different; I am faced with many challenges.
Help me know I am not powerless and that I am surviving.
Give me hope for tomorrow.
Let me believe in myself and allow others to comfort me.
