Six Reflection evenings, organised by the Irish Institute for Pastoral Studies, on Zoom with Sr Therese Fitzgerald to support you in your Lenten journey: New beginnings and possibilities often emerge after difficult times. The last days of Jesus’ life were full of challenge, rejection, betrayal, and loss for Jesus and his followers.

But they were followed by Resurrection with new life for all. Reflecting on the stories of the days leading up to the death of Jesus can help us prepare for the new life that is offered at Easter. Sr. Therese has a wonderful gift of unlocking the scriptures in a very real and personal way. The reflection series will run from 7:30pm to 9pm each Monday for 6 weeks, from Monday 22nd February through to Monday 29th March. A contribution of €15 is requested, covering all six evenings.
