Kairos retreat at third level

jesretreat_01For the first time ever, Colaiste Iognaid (The ‘Jes’) ran a Kairos retreat in Esker Monastery, Athenry, for 22 mainly ex-Jes students who had graduated and were in university. They had missed out on their Kairos retreat when at school so Brendan McManus SJ (chaplain in the Jes) and Conall O’Cuinn SJ (vocations promoter for the Irish Jesuit Province) ran an extra one for them. “It was a great success” said Brendan; “the fact that they were older and had opted to come on it made for a super retreat”. Conall O’Cuinn added: “The hope is to continue running retreats at universities.”
