About this event

Its good to read, and its good to get together and enjoy one another's company. So its true to say that book clubs are popular and valuable gatherings in almost every community.

A spiritual book club is an opportunity to read books that reflect on spirituality, faith, hope and love. Its often a good support in reading books we might otherwise not get around to enjoying or learning from.

This spiritual book club aims to be a gentle gathering, not an academic setting.

We will choose books for the term ahead and discuss one at each meeting, all books will be accessible and inexpensive, and there is no charge for the gathering. No experience is needed and any sharing will be on how we 'experienced the book' rather than any analysis or theological commentary

Possible books for Autumn/Winter 2023 (the September gathering will decide from a 10 book selection!)

- Nature Praising God by Dermot A Lane.

- God in Everyday: A whispered prayer: Deirdre Powell

- Hannah Coulter: Wendell Barry

- Sensible Shoes: Sharon G Brown

About the organiser

FCJ Spirituality House, formerly Ibriken Lodge, is a gentle haven for spiritual searchers. Here we make time to appreciate Gods creation, to share unrushed moments together and to accompany one another on our own particular faith journey. All are welcome to enter into the spirit of this lovely home by the sea, where we can so clearly see ‘nature as a magnificent book in which God speaks to us’ each morning (Pope Francis, LS12)

The FCJ Spirituality House is the summer home of the FCJ sisters who have loved to visit Spanish Point for generations. Now they would like to share their home with the wider community through spiritual moments, enjoyment of the natural beauty of creation, and the lifting of spirits with music, art and poetry.

Noirin Lynch is the Director of the House - a Limerick woman based in Clare, a pastoral worker with almost 30 years experience in diocese, parish and spirituality centres.

During these times, we ask all visitors to the site to have their Covid Cert ready, and where appropriate to mask out o an abundance of care for one another.
