Facilitation, Retreats & Speaking

I believe in the presence of the Holy Spirit at work within all individuals and groups of people seeking to do God’s will. I am passionate about facilitating people to tap into this higher power at work. I am available to engage for facilitation of groups or organisations who are keen to develop their mission and plan for the coming year/s. I work using a model of communal discernment with prayer and scripture as a guide. I have worked for a number of Dioceses in Ireland as well as Religious Orders and Parish Pastoral Councils.

Working with my writing partner, Fr Brendan McManus SJ, I am available to do a small number of retreats in any given year. These retreats are based on Ignatian Spirituality and use our two books, Finding God in the Mess and Deeper into the Mess, as a framework. We are both musicians, so, music and song play a big part in our retreats.

I have a lot of experience of speaking at Novenas, Missions and parish gatherings engaging people in the reality of God at work in the nuts and bolts of every day life.

While I have no set fees for this work, I would encourage all who seek to engage me to consider the rates set out by AMRI (Association of Missionaries and Religious in Ireland) as a guide for payment.
