  1. Living the Word of God –Food for Thought
    Dr. Kieran O’ Mahony O.S.A. will challenge us to look at the great events which gave us new life in Christ by considering the following questions:
    What happened for us all on Good Friday and Easter Sunday?
    What did Jesus himself think?
    How can we talk meaningfully of salvation in our contemporary world?
  1. Praying the Way to WMOF – A Well of Resources
    Fr. Damian McNeice will explore a variety of resources including the WMOF Icon of the Holy Family, station Masses and our native prayer traditions to help us pray our way towards next August’s World Meeting of Families.
  2. Celebrating Significant Wedding Anniversaries –A Parish Approach
    Ms. Jean Flanagan and Ms. Anne McHugh from St. Gabriel’s Parish, Dollymount will explain in detail the way in which their parish marks significant wedding anniversaries. It is hoped that each parish/grouping would mark these anniversaries in the autumn – 13/14 October as a continuing legacy of the WMOF.
  3. Contemplation and Action for Lent – From Evagrius to Dot Cotton
    Fr. Pat O’Donoghue will suggest ways to live each day of Lent prayerfully and practically. He will link the spirituality of the Desert Fathers and Mothers, the daily liturgy and the call to Christian action with the Lenten 2018 Calendar/Cards.
  4. Trócaire and Lent
    This is the 45th year of the Trócaire Lenten Campaign. Once again their team will conduct a workshop on this year’s campaign and the liturgical resources that accompany it. In this way we can link liturgy and life – prayerful charity in action.
  5. ‘Voice for Life’ Ms. Blanaid Murphy will introduce the ‘Voice for Life’ Training Programme of the Royal School of Church Music (a worldwide ecumenical organisation dedicated to the development of church music in all Christian denominations). This offers training for all sorts of church choir members and congregational singers. It includes a range of training materials, repertoire, and supports for choirs that will encourage and develop a singing culture in parishes, in schools or in the wider community. The full morning session will be informative and interactive and is open to church musicians and singers. It will give a flavour of the flexibility and usefulness of this programme for people of all ages and abilities.
