When your losses and hurts no longer control you and you no longer blindly react to them, you will have experienced healing.

  • Anyone who has suffered bereavement through death

  • Anyone who has suffered the breakdown of a marriage/separation

  • Anyone who would like a guided retreat that leads to wholeness

  • If you find it difficult to forgive someone from the past

Handing on Our Faith in the Home.

To be a parent is to find oneself enrolled in an elite school of Love “ 

Facilitator: Kate Liffey

“The spirituality of family love is made up of thousands of small but real gestures….In that variety of gifts and encounters which deepen communion, God has his dwelling place. This mutual concern “brings together the human and the divine” for it is filled with the love of God.” (AL, 315)

Facing the challenge of handing on the faith is a challenge for parents but also for grandparents, they can play a very powerful role. 
Grandparents, you can be part of this great adventure! 

“To Love someone is to show to them their beauty, their worth and their importance”.

Kate Liffey is the national director for Catechetics and coordinator of the National Faith Development Team for the Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference. She is the CPSMA’s representative on the NCCA’s Early Childhood and Primary Board and, from this engagement, has coordinated responses to the NCCA’s proposals on Education about Religions and Beliefs and Ethics, and on a redeveloped primary curriculum. She also coordinates the work of the Council for Catechetics working groups on post-primary Religious Education, youth and young adult ministry and a working group on the catechetical implications of Laudato Si’.

A Journey of Healing & Transformation.

Facilitator:

This interactive seminar will include aspects of both the personal and ancestral story.

Our Ancestral healing or family tree healing is the process of dealing with those dynamics within the family psyche which are a source of dysfunctional behaviour leading to problems in the lives of those concerned. Unlike genetically transmitted family traits, these connections can be dealt with at an energetic and spiritual level by the present generation, leaving past, present and future generations free of their power. Identification of the meaning and origin of these destructive patterns can lead us into a healing process that frees us to make new choices of how we live and relate in the present.

Fr Jim Cogley is a psychotherapist and woodturner with over thirty years experience. He was one of the early leaders in the Charismatic Renewal Movement in Ireland. Based in the picturesque village of Oylegate in Co. Wexford, his particular interest is that of Healing, both personal and intergenerational, and how the past that is unacknowledged can still influence the present. As an artist with wood he presents the age old truths in the form of symbols that speak to the soul.

Regarded as an inspirational speaker he in constantly in demand for seminars, retreats and conferences,. He is the author of several books in the popular Wood You Believe series including: “The Unfolding Self”, “The Ancestral Self”, and “The Twinless Self”. His latest publication, “The Spiritual Self – A Spirituality of Healing and Integration“, has been highly acclaimed as one of the best contributions to religious journalism in recent times.
