Thomas Merton had an amazing ability to speak to people across the denominations and also across faiths. A major focus of his life and work related to contemplative prayer and peace, therefore it is fitting that we are establishing a group in Ireland with a view to promoting and nurturing these twin ideals. We are delighted to be partnering with the Corrymeela Community to launch this group and we hope to hold regular retreats in Ballycastle, as well as smaller, local meetings, in the months and years ahead.
Bookings are now being taken for the launch event, which will run from 10am to 4pm on Saturday 10th December 2011 at the Corrymeela Community’s Ballycastle Centre, and which costs £25 per delegate (inclusive of lunch and refreshments throughout the day). There is a concessionary rate for those who are unwaged. Contact Matt at firstname.lastname@example.org or 02820761726 for further information and delegate registration.
