MAGiS Hungary 2010
Sli Eile teamed with Dromore Diocese in Northern Ireland to bring a group of twenty young people to partake in the MAGiS Hungary programme for two weeks in August. Participants were split into multi-national groups for the experiments, and each day consisted of five core elements: morning prayer, the central activity (experiment), liturgy, Magis reflection circle, and the evening Examen of Consciousness. The experience was a powerful one, each person being drawn into the MAGiS (More) of their lives through different aspects of the experiments. The eclectic mix of the Irish group – well-off and poor, and of different levels of education (including two Maynooth seminarians) – enriched the sharing, and it introduced new people to the dynamic of MAGiS as an Ignatian programme for young people seeking to develop their faith, ahead of the MAGiS-World Youth Day event in Spain, August 2011.
