The day started with Ciaran Losasso (Ignite Team Leader) running games and small groups. Hamish MacQueen (Director of Youth Service) followed this with a talk about his faith journey and he sung a song he wrote based on the words of St Paul that ‘Nothing can separate us from the love of God’.
Lunch was enjoyed in the beautiful garden before workshops, including one about praying through music, was held on the beach. The day ended with Fr Luke Goymour (Chaplain to the Ignite Team) leading a time of Adoration.
What a fantastic venue for a youth event, or in fact a day retreat or parish away day, said Hamish: “We were made to feel so welcome by Carol, one of the lay members of the community and the sisters. There’s a hall, little kitchen, chapel and beautiful garden, and it’s only a short walk from the beach. Perfect.”
If you would be interested in using the convent for an event, please contact Carol, email: email@example.com . If you would be interested in running a Glow day, please contact the Ignite Team, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
