Mindfulness Evenings with Anne O’Reilly @ Margaret Aylward Centre for Faith and Dialogue
Oct 17 @ 7:30 pm – Dec 12 @ 9:30 pm
Mindfulness Evenings with Anne O’Reilly @ Margaret Aylward Centre for Faith and Dialogue | County Dublin | Ireland

Slow Down. Take the mindful path back home.

In an increasingly busy and frantic world it is important to make time to come home to our own hearts. When we begin to slow down and pay attention it becomes easier to be still in the present moment.

In this series of classes participants will be introduced to the principles of mindfulness practice. We will learn how to follow the breath and allow it to anchor us in each moment. There will be opportunities to practise sitting and walking meditation and other gentle movement exercises. Guided meditation will be accompanied by instrumental music and sacred poetry. We will cultivate a sense of spacious awareness in an atmosphere of non judging and compassion.

The aim of this Tuesday evening course is to nurture compassion and loving kindness towards oneself, others and the natural world. The focus is on mindfulness as presence of heart and coming home to ourselves. It is suitable both for beginners and those already on the path. There is great support in meeting from week to week with the same group and learning to develop a practice that can be sustained when the classes are finished.

How we killed God-a talk-John Waters and David Quinn-Galway @ Menlo Park Hotel
Nov 21 @ 8:00 pm

 

WE ARE very pleased to invite you to our next talk which will be given by commentator and author, John Waters, and columnist and head of The Iona Institute, David Quinn.

John and David will discuss how ‘Official Ireland’ is ruthlessly pushing all consideration of God to the margins of Irish life. Christians are allowed no place in public debate, and God is rarely spoken of in public any more. So far as Irish public life is concerned, we have effectively ‘killed’ God. Except we cannot do that of course, so we do the next best thing; we pretend he is ‘dead’.

John and David will talk about the consequences of this, about how it has played out in Irish life over the last twenty-five years, and what we can do about it. David will draw on his forthcoming book, also called ‘How we kill God (and other tales of modern Ireland)’, which is a selection of his columns from 1994 to the present.

John was for many years a national newspaper columnist. He wrote for The Irish Times, The Irish Daily Mail and The Irish and Sunday Independents.

He is the author of numerous books including Jiving at the Crossroads; An Intelligent Person’s Guide to Modern Ireland; Lapsed AgnosticBeyond Consolation: or How We Became Too Clever for God… and Our Own Good; and Was it for this? Why Ireland lost the plot.

David is currently a columnist with The Sunday Times and The Irish Catholic. He has previously been a columnist with The Irish Independent and The Sunday Business Post.

Changing Black to Bright Friday – Sr Stan Kennedy +++ St Stephens Green, Dublin @ University Church
Nov 24 @ 2:00 pm – 7:00 pm

 

‘Bright Friday’ is a free event which will be held in University Church on St Stephen’s Green, Dublin from 2-7pm and will be have periods of reflective music, mindfulness meditations and poetry readings.

Social campaigner and mindfulness practitioner Sr Stan Kennedy
will lead the line-up which includes Fr Brian D’Arcy,
Mark Patrick Hederman OSB,
JohnWaters
and a number of musicians and choirs.

Author of Surprised by Fire, Martina Lehane Sheehan will conclude the day with a candlelit mindfulness meditation.

According to her new book modern research in psychology shows that “our externals can only contribute to our happiness by 10 % (what we buy, what we own etc). Yet we chase it – especially on Black Friday!

“Approx 50% of our happiness levels are determined by genetic inheritance and 40 % is in our own control… (attitudes, beliefs, etc.). It’s the 40% solution.”

All welcome to drop in for part or all of the day.

ENCIRCLING IRELAND WITH A HUMAN ROSARY-A new prayer initiative-Nov 26 @ Coast of Ireland, Europe
Nov 26 @ 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm

Please see information below and attached on the Rosary on the Coast for Life and Faith in Ireland, hopefully you will be able to take part and spread the word as much as possible…

ROSARY ON THE COAST IRELAND…..HOW TO GET INVOLVED

On Sunday 26 November 2017, the Feast of Christ the King, at 2:30pm, we are going to the coasts of Ireland to pray the Rosary for the Preservation of Faith in Ireland and the Protection of Life in Ireland .

ENCIRCLING IRELAND WITH A HUMAN ROSARY: Ideally we will have a minimum of 53 locations around the coast for the Hail Marys in a Rosary. If we have more, that’s even better. If you can’t travel to a coastal location then it would be great if people could gather at any location in Ireland to take part.

HOW YOU CAN HELP…ORGANISE A LOCATION: We are calling on Bishops, Priests, individual lay faithful, friends, prayer groups, apostolates, etc to select locations that they will travel to on the day. We are working on Our Lord’s Word that ‘where two or three gathered’, Christ our King and Mary our Queen will be there. But don’t worry once your location is on the list Our Lady will bring more!

SEND US YOUR LOCATION…..be very precise
email [email protected] or TEXT or CALL 0872786552 or message us on our facebook page called ‘Rosary on the Coast for Life and Faith Ireland’ where you can also view an updated list of locations already planned. Website: https://www.coastalrosaryireland.ie

Please see attachments for further information and for distribution as much as possible.

Mercy at the Shannon Mall- Friday – Dec 8
Dec 4 @ 11:23 am – 12:23 pm

 

Bishop Fintan Monahan, Bishop of Killaloe, will be among the 20 Priests present in Skycourt Shopping Centre, Shannon, for the third Mercy on The Mall day on Friday 8th December next.

From 1pm to 6pm, 20 Priests will make themselves available to shoppers and people in Skycourt who would like to avail of the opportunity for Confession, a chat or a blessing.

Mercy on The Mall first took place in Skycourt Shopping Centre in Shannon for the first time in 2015 at the start of the Jubilee Year of Mercy. The day proved so successful, that both Management and Priests were requested to organise a day again last year.     The same demand is there again this year from both shoppers and management who have received requests from shoppers for Confessions on the Mall for Christmas. The initiative comes from the call of Pope Francis for Priests to bring the gospel to the market place and for Priests to make themselves available to people who wish to avail of the sacrament or to make a connection with the Church.

For the past two years, all 20 Priests were kept engaged with shoppers. One woman who availed of the sacrament described her experience as “liberating”, another remarked that it was a “new beginning”.

Priests will be located at different locations in the Mall if people wish to engage with them. The School Choir from St. Conaire’s Primary School in Shannon will provide seasonal music and song.

  • This event will be held in honour of The Divine Infancy and Our Lady of Guadalupe (feast day 12 December) as we contemplate the amazing events in 1531 that led to the conversion of millions to Christianity and the ending of a sadistic culture based on violence and death. In reverent anticipation of Our Saviour’s nativity, we will remember especially persecuted families, children, and the Unborn.
  • The event will include Mass, entrustment and intercessional prayers, what you can do to help persecuted Christians, and humble thanksgiving for the positive developments this year including the release of Fr Tom Uzuunnalil from captivity and degradation of IS (Daesh).
  • If you are unable to attend, you can still join in using our prayers and directions for concurrent events (includes special thanksgiving prayer).
