Alive and Active’, taught by Bishop Leo O’Reilly (Retired) and Fr. Darragh Connolly, combines Contemplative Prayer with Scripture. The Contemplative prayer component will help you learn to relax fully and completely for a more direct encounter with God. The Scripture component offers a light examination of the thinking of Jesus Christ, to both know him better and ponder where his thinking intersects with your life.  The ‘Alive and Active’ course will run on Thursdays for 6 nights starting on the 27th October, 7:30pm-9:00pm.
