Lenten Spiritual Programme 2016

Tuesdays at 7.30pm, Acorn Centre, Ballinderreen
(Tea & coffee served after Mass prior to sessions)
Feb 16th and 23rd
‘How do we see the resources of the earth?’‘Can we think differently about our relationship with nature?’
Mindful of current scientific knowledge and within the framework of Pope Francis’ recent Encyclical, which reminds us that all creation is a gift from God, we will explore the basic principles of the universe namely diversity, inner spirit and interconnectedness. How does a newer understanding of creation guide our relationships, our responsibilities and our spiritual life?
Sr. Phyllis Kilcoyne, Mercy Sister, scientist and spiritual explorer.
ALL VERY WELCOME!
