Monday 15th October
Irish Institute for Pastoral Studies
MIC St. Patrick’s Campus, Thurles
(11.00a.m. to 4.30p.m.)
This one-day gathering ran from mid-morning to late afternoon and offered the opportunity to reflect on experience, taking the stories of three initiatives which have sought to connect with and listen to people’s lives in a way that makes for deeper faith – particularly focusing on young parents and younger adults. We explored these stories, so as to draw out learnings about building capacity. We sought to discern what skills are required and what kind of training/formation would be most appropriate into the future.
