June Online Retreat Days
Normally in the month of June we would be welcoming pilgrims to the Island for the Three Day Pilgrimage, but these are not normal times we are living through.
Lough Derg has begun to work through the the public health protcols and is preparing for opening later in the summer as guided by the roadmap given by the Irish Government on the easing of restrictions.
During the month of May we embarked on offering a very different experience to keep Lough Derg connected with the many people who make a One Day Retreat on the Island in May. On four days we welcomed people to share in a programme that included elements of our One Day Retreats, but in a way adapted to an online format. We were overwhelmed by the positive responses and enquiries about possible further dates.
Encouraged by the responses we will offer three further Online Retreat Days in June:
Sunday 7 June 2020
Saturday 13 June 2020
Thursday 18 June 2020
To read more about the retreats and where to go and how to join the retreat days we invite you to visit https://loughderg.live/
This is a new, dedicated website offering retreat resources for people to access as and when they are free to do so. A recording is available from one of the day retreats in May. It is offered as a complete programme to support people who do not have the time in their schedule to share a day with us online in June. This retreat recording can be accessed on this new website at any time.
The Lough Derg team are currently working remotely Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm on 071 9861518, answering calls, responding to messages and emails, and are available on our social and digital platforms.
