Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration Mission August, 2016
With Fr. Declan Gibson MSE
Deacon Michael Donnelly MSE
Villa Maria Retreat Days
Tuesday August 9th to Friday August 12th
You MUST register for the morning program as it will be in the Hostel Chapel and this cannot remain open to the street all morning. To be able to use this Chapel we will need to know who is coming and you will need to be able to stay through to 12noon. We can't be coming and going for security reasons, as it is in the middle of the nursing home during working hours. We are most grateful for the use of the Chapel and hope all will respect this request.
You may register for as many days as you wish. Register here
Cost - No fixed cost, instead there will be a collection at Mass each day.
Lunch - bring your own. Or with registration you can sign up for a meal at a small cost - payment in advance please.
On Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday there will be spiritual direction and possibly confession as well available. All by appointment and first for those registering in the morning program. There will also be times for Confession and spiritual direction the week before and after this week, however, these times have not been worked out yet.
In the evenings at 7.30pm of Tuesday and Wednesday there will be reflection in the Adoration Chapel. Everyone is welcome and there is no need to register. This will hopefully give a chance of retreat for those who cannot come during the day. In this case you are encouraged to make a mini retreat and come for some time of adoration before and after the meditation.
