Seminar for Women | Friday-Sunday, 23-25 February
Christians are called to serve as witnesses to the faith - to invite others to grow in their own relationship with God by the example of their actions and words. The Christian Witness Seminar delves into this in greater depth.
This weekend residential seminar aims to inspire and encourage you to live the catholic faith today.
As well as stimulating talks you will have the time to exchange ideas and experiences with other participants who, like you, want to integrate their faith into their personal, social and professional lives.
This seminar is for women - single or dating - in their 20-30s.
It is not geared toward women who are married. If married, we recommend you check out Hearts+Minds overnight (March 9-10).
The Church needs people of all walks of life who strive for holiness every day. The Church in Ireland will thrive through the actions of those Baptised, women and men who are prepared and willing to bring the faith to the very centre of society.
Human virtues are essential for human and spiritual growth, particularly the role of our emotions in acting and reacting to our circumstances. In this session, we will look at what it means to mature emotionally and its benefits.
Whether you are dating intentionally or simply meandering, there are some things worth remembering when thinking seriously about the future and nurturing the values that you care about.
