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 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.

Location: Prayer Centre
Recommended Donation €10 per day
Facilitators: Terry Howard SJ & Jesuit Team
Times: Registration on Sunday 26 July at 7.30pm
