Watering the Roots at the Wellspring of Mercy 2019
Mercy International Association will present this 4-week renewal programme from 4pm on Sunday, 19 May to 11am Friday, 14 June 2019.
Participants will have the opportunity to take time out in an atmosphere of warmth, hospitality, and internationality in order to discern more clearly the invitation of the Spirit in how to live out the mission of Mercy in our church and world.
Anne Curtis rsm (Americas), will be present for the month and will weave an ecological and justice thread throughout the programme, untilising her experience with liturgy and ritual. Brenda Dolphin rsm (Congregation) will share insights into Catherine McAuley and consider her present-day relevance. Margaret Daly-Denton will use examples from the Gospel of John, sharing some of the earth-conscious insights that came to her when she wrote the book: John: An Earth Bible Commentary, Supposing Him to Be the Gardener, and encouraging the participants to share the unique ecological perspective that each of them would bring from their own experiences to their reading of the Gospel.
The programme will be supported throughout by the staff at Mercy International Centre who will give participants opportunities to engage with the stories of the House, of Catherine and the first women here and our global mercy story today.
Cost: €3000 (Residential); €1900 (Non-residential).
