Tobar Mhuire Retreat: Loss and Blessings: November is a time when we remember loved ones who have died. At times of loss we are often too hurt or too busy looking after others to reflect upon the blessings we have received from those who have died. This day of prayer; reflection and symbols, will be a chance to take time aside; to reflect upon the memory of those who have gone before us, and to give thanks for those who have touched our lives. You are welcome to bring a picture or memento of the person you are remembering. Saturday 23rd November 2019. 10.30am – 4.00pm Day led by: Brian McKee Cost: £30 (includes tea/coffee and light lunch)
