School Retreats, for both Second-Level and for Confirmation students, will continue, please God, through this coming academic year, from September 2017 to May 2018. Our Esker Youth Ministry Team will provide this service. You may keep in touch with us through our Facebook page YouthMinistryEsker.
“THE ESKER EXPERIENCE”: Esker Monastery, Retreat House, and Youth Village, outside Athenry in County Galway, has been and is a place of great welcome, a place where people relax and experience life and togetherness at a different pace and in a different space. To young people we offer ‘The Esker Experience’ as a form of a youth retreat: (see sub-page). We also offer retreats occasionally to schools in their own area.
