The Irish News was on hand to report on our Assembly and Opening Ceremony. Previously we would have had to book a place for this event, but we are now fortunate to be able to hold such gatherings in Tobar Mhuire. The day was scheduled as part of our on-going reflection on our life and mission. About 30 gathered to take part in the day. Dr. Michael O Leary presented the findings of a Personnel Audit and helped the gathering to make sense of the results. Some decisions were taken towards the end of the proceedings. Having such a large group of our men present we used the opportunity to bless the Chapel and new Icon Crucifix. The feedback on the renovations was very positive, the men were impressed with the renovations and appreciated the new Stations of the Cross situated in the Chapel Square.
This Thursday the 3rd February we will re-open the Chapel to the public begining with First Friday Confessions (details in the News section). The following day the Community will transfer their morning liturgical celebrations to the Retreat Chapel: Morning Prayer of the Church at 7.45am followed by Eucharist at 8am all welcome.

PRAYER AT THE END OF AN OLD YEAR AND THE BEGINING OF A NEW ONE.....
May our coming’s and going’s our hello’s and goodbyes be guided by Him who first breathed life into our very soul. May we live deliberately and decisively not choosing the road designed for the faint-hearted.
May the love and affection we share and receive increase our faith and optimism about the goodness of self and others. May it help us to glimpse and even feel the presence of the Sacred in and around our lives.
And finally may 2011 see us: still learning, still doubting, still curious, still risking, still questioning, and still open to the great Project of Love we call the Christian Faith
