On behalf of the Parish and our Group we express our gratitude to Colette Conroy for her expertise and dedication over the years and wish her many blessings in the future. We are delighted to welcome our new members who have joined us during the year and we extend our invitation to other parishioners to come along and observe what we do and perhaps become involved.
ADVENTURES IN SPIRITUALITY
The next series of talks will explore the influence of cosmology and ecology on spirituality today. We live in a time when the findings of science are confirming the intuitions of the mystics. We propose to hold six talks over the winter months. The first of these will take place on TUESDAY 30TH SEPTEMBER AT 8.00 PM IN THE FOUNDERS ROOM and will be given by Anthony McDonnell who has a Doctorate in Education from UCD and who studied Cosmology at the California Institute under the internationally renowned Professor Brian Swimme. Later speakers will include Niamh Brennan, Writer and Workshop Facilitator in area of Cosmology and Spirituality; Mary T Malone, Theologian and Author and Sr. Miriam Lucas, Director of Luisne Centre for Spirituality. Come along and see how religion and spirituality are central to the bigger picture. All are welcome.
