School of Holiness and Adult Faith Formation Dates and Details

 Email from DFOT today:

This past weekend we had the Adult faith Formation Pilot Program in Ireland, 2nd- 4th May 2014.

It was a great success with over 50 people attending. This is what people were saying:

  •  ‘I absolutely loved it! I really felt like I was absorbing all the information and the techniques that were taught. I was very interested in all the ways we can touch upon anxiety in our lives.  For someone who has a hard time concentrating I felt myself completely enthralled. It was comforting to know that there was a reason for feeling the way we do at times. I’ve heard Anne’s talks over the years and I can genuinely say that there is always something new to take away from what she has to say. Thank you’. 

  • 'I felt very comfortable within the group and came with an open mind.  I was very enlightened. The weekend gave me loads of food for thought. We can be so involved with the spiritual work and forget the human side. I feel my heart and mindhave been opened and ready for change and structure. It was a very gentle approach but got in deep and we really learnt some new skills. There is a great need for this, thank you Anne. We were all blessed to be present at this weekend’.

  • ‘I liked the fellowship with all those attending and the availability of Confession and Holy Mass. I liked the explanation of personal boundaries and Anne’s core teaching of ‘Christ’s Love for me’. I enjoyed the friendliness of all the staff and Fr. Darragh’s helpful input throughout’.
