Loved the opportunity to facilitate and gather with the island community for various liturgies during 2018 .

Remembers all little ones that died young or before birth. It is a very special but poignant time, helped by the presence and energy of the children of the island .

Easter and Christmas are special times and I love facilitating the local choir and movement for liturgy.

This year saw the complete clearing and preparing the way for exciting possibilities of developing a permanent retreat and culture space right beside my house on Inis Mór. I am grateful to all the helpers who gave of their time and energy to help with the project and the work continues in 2019. It was wonderful to share music and drama in the space and to pray great intentions and energy with the help of pilgrims that passed through the island this year.
