Centering Prayer retreat in preparation of Holy week and Easter

“Death is not the end of anything, but the final completion of a process and the triumph of the grace of God”.

A Centering Prayer retreat entitled  ‘The gift of life.: Death and Dying, Life and Living’ will take place at Kylemore Abbey from March 30th to April 3rd. This retreat offers the retreatant a deep immersion in the silence of Centering Prayer and will be enhanced by the opportunity to join the daily Offices of the Benedictine Community.

The retreat will be facilitated by Fionnuala Quinn O.P., Coordinator of Contemplative Outreach Dublin and Lesley Ann O’Connor who serves on the global team for Contemplative Outreach. The retreat will include DVDs featuring Fr Thomasa Keating, Lectio Divinia and one on one conversations with retreat facilitators.
