Our Ember group attended a very important meeting on Monday along with ten other schools who participate in the program. The meeting was an opportunity to discuss their journey so far in the Ember program and to participate in some reflection and prayer. They also got the chance to learn some more about sacred spaces.
Anna McGee the diocesan adviser facilitated the day and invited along Fr.Peter McVerry to give an insightful talk on his faith development and the amazing work he does with the homeless here in Dublin.
