May Merton Fellowship Day Retreat

The next meeting of the Thomas Merton Fellowship will take place in Co. Donegal – at Malin (Lagg) Presbyterian Church Hall on Saturday 25th May from 10.00am until 4.00pm.
Refreshments on arrival and a light lunch of sandwiches, tea, coffee will be provided.
It will take around 2.5hrs to travel from Belfast to Malin. Some people may want to come on Friday night or stay over on Saturday night. There are lots of B&Bs in the area and a small hotel in Malin Town . I can supply you with addresses and phone numbers, via our host – Tom Finnigan, closer to the time.
I’ll put together a programme in the next week or so, but given the success of the last meeting, I’ll likely follow that format by including some time for lectio divina, contemplative prayer/meditation, group discussion and a chance to listen to excerpts of Merton’s sermons/lectures.  If there is anything else you want added to the programme………just let me know!
As always, we welcome new members to our group, so please share this notice with anyone you think might be interested in joining us.
Finally, do let me know as soon as possible if you plan to come; I hope you will!
Best wishes,
Scott (scottpeddie@sky.com)

    I plan to attend Scott. Thanks for going to the trouble of organising these meetings.

    Dear Scott,
    I`m afraid I can`t come to the retreat in Donegal. Alex, our minister is leaving permanently for the States on June 30th and we`ve all sorts of things arranged for the weekends before that. I need the retreat, life is hectic at the minute! I`ll just have to wait till the next one.
    Disappointed,
    Ingrid.
