THOUGHT: Jesus Christ lived in the midst of his enemies. At the end all his disciples deserted him. On the Cross he was utterly alone, surrounded by evildoers and mockers. For this cause he had come, to bring peace to the enemies of God. So the Christian, too, belongs not in the seclusion of a cloistered life but in the thick of foes. Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

SCHOOLS; Over 350 students, representing 14 post-primary schools from throughout the diocese, attended the Ceiliúradh na nOg celebration day in the Brandon Hotel in Tralee on Wednesday, March 29th. 2017 The students presented their projects which they carried out over the academic year. The purpose of Ceiliúradh na nÓg is to develop the faith life of Transition and Fifth year students. This was achieved through school or parish based initiatives. The variation of projects was outstanding and included subjects like the liturgical year, church architecture, liturgical music, justice and peace, ecology and much more.

Deirdre Walsh from Kerry Radio was the M.C. for the occasion and Br. Richard Hendrick was the guest speaker. Br. Richard’s keynote address was entitled: ‘Fully Awake, Fully Aware, Fully Alive in Christ: Living the Light of the Gospel.’ There was also a number of faith based workshops in the morning, presenters included, Stephen Farley from Trócaire, Stephen touched on Social Justice issues. Anne O’ Donnell from Siamsa Tire presented an excellent workshop on liturgical movement and dance and Joanne Barry, also from Siamsa Tire, presented a workshop on Faith and Drama. We were delighted to welcome Jonny Sommerville from NUA Ireland. NUA is Scripture Union Ireland’s first ever film series.

Ruti Lachs, Kerry based musician, presented an excellent workshop on Spirituality through Music.
