About this event

  • 1 day 19 hours

This weekend retreat offers us the invitation to pause, ponder, acknowledge and celebrate with gratitude the many blessings in our lives.

In light of the great Judeo- Christian tradition and symbols of HARVEST THANKSGIVING ,a graced space is offered during these days to glean the kernels of truth and wisdom hidden in the mystery of our own daily life.

This will be a time to “ingather”, that is, to reflect, remember and recognise the grace of God at work within and around us in order to cultivate, and be resourced by a spirit of gratitude and hope:

“Lord, I will give you thanks with my whole heart”,Psalm 138:1

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing,

so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit” Rom 15:13

Carol Barry will accompany and guide us on this weekend drawing on her experience and skills as a Theologian, Lecturer in Biblical Spirituality, Retreat Director, Anam Chara and Practitioner of Bibliodrama and Deep Talk Soul Stories.

This weekend retreat is available with residential and non-residential options.

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.
