All will be well, and all will be well, and every kind of thing will be well.
St Julian of Norwich, Showings, chapter 27

On this weekend Jessie Rogers will help us to reflect on our understanding, and experience, of resurrection hope. Have we encountered the hope which gives us courage to live and to love without looking away or closing in on ourselves? Could we live from that place of joy in this Easter season? Join us by the sea as we reflect gently and with kindness and hope.

Jessie Rogers was born in South Africa and but took Limerick to her heart in 2007 when she came to work with the Dominican Biblical Institute and Mary Immaculate College. She is currently Dean of the Faculty of Theology and a lecturer in Sacred Scripture in Maynooth. She is also a member of the Irish synodal pathway steering group (listen here: https://youtu.be/98kn-DUZYgA), and of the Gody Play College of trainers (a children's scripture sharing and catechitical program)

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.

€200 – €320
