We’re up and running again with our school retreat team. We have a new leader who is the full-time co-ordinator and developer of Youth Ministry in and from Esker,- Mrs. Lizzie Harrison, who prior to coming here in August 2014 had worked for eight years as Chaplain in Loreto Crumlin, and earlier had a retreat team, and before that worked in the diocese of Clonfert for a while. We wish Lizzie the very best, and every blessing on her work in Esker.
Last week we had students from St. Mary’s Rathmines (6th years), and from Clongowes Wood (3rd years), first time for both schools. We finished the week with a group from Crescent Comprehensive in Limerick, 6th year students. Thanks to all of them for coming, and for their schools and teachers for sending them! We had a great time together, for their retreats. God bless them in the year ahead.
Since then, this week, we had a group of Leaving Cert Students from Blackrock College in Dublin, from Sunday evening until Tuesday midday. Again, a great group of young adults, who have blessed us by their presence here. Thanks, lads!
Please keep our ministry in your prayers. It is a joy for us to work with the young people when they come.
