Life is hectic and we can become enslaved to our smart phones and 24/7 communication mindset. We may wish we could be free for a while and pursue God in a little solitude and silence. We will be holding ten Oasis Days throughout 2019. These will all take place in the beautiful and inspiring grounds of the Margaret Aylward Centre (not far from The National Botanical Gardens).
Between the hours of 9:30am and 2:00pm, we’ll have an opportunity for concentrated time with God through prayer and scripture. There will also be a light lunch served and opportunity to wander round the grounds.
Suggested voluntary donation on the day €10/per person per oasis day.
Here’s a list of the Oasis Days for 2019 and we’d love to have you join us: Sat. 26 Jan., 16 Feb., 23 Mar., 13 Apr., 18 May, 8 Jun., 10 Aug., 21 Sep., 19 Oct., 14 Dec.
If you’ve never done anything like this before and you’re not sure whether it’s for you, either go to Alan for a chat or just take the risk and come along. You’ll be surprised how the time passes and how refreshed you’ll be afterwards.
For catering purposes please indicate your intention to attend (indicating which date(s) you are registering for) to: firstname.lastname@example.org or 01 8378600
