Sat 23 Nov ‘Promise of new life’ with Sr. Moya Hegarty

Refresh, Rewind and Reconnect!

Take time out with a ‘Quiet Day’ away from the demands of busy life. Nourish your soul and discover new life in the heart of the Gospels, through Guided Meditation and quiet reflection. Take the opportunity of a one to one conversation with a Prayer Guide in order to gain a deeper awareness of who you are in God’s presence.

This event, facilitated by Steven Warner (Associate Director of Notre Dame Newman Centre for Faith and Reason) will cater for all those who are involved in ministry within their own parishes – Choirs, Ministers of the Word, Ministers of the Eucharist, Youth Ministry, Sacristans and Altar groups.

The day will include some reflective time on the importance of being involved actively in your Parish, followed by workshops which will provide some practical resources and training within your particular ministry. When booking please state which Ministry workshop you are interested in.

Time: 11.00am –3.00pm

Venue: Blessed Sacrament Chapel

Using the recently installed ‘Knock miniature village model’ as the focal point, the seminar will explore all aspects of life in Ireland at the time of the Apparition in 1879, offering a fascinating insight into village life in Knock and the historical and social context of the Apparition. The seminar will end with a visit to the Museum to view the model.
