They came and saw

November 30, 2023 in Niall's Notes

Four enquirers came to the recent come and see vocations weekend at Gardiner Street. On the Friday evening we heard two inspiring Jesuit vocation stories. On Saturday we read and discussed some of St. Ignatius’s original writings about the Jesuits and on Sunday morning we looked at the actual process of becoming a Jesuit. There was plenty of time for questions and conversation and an enjoyable movie night too! It was a pleasure to welcome these young men into our Jesuit community for the weekend.

Samuel Group

Once a month I meet with a group of young adults who are discerning God’s will in their lives. At our meeting this month I spoke about belonging to God. This sense of spiritual belonging changes the discernment question from “What will I do with my life?” to “How do I want to serve God to whom I belong?”

Ignatius the mystic

Fr Brian O’Leary SJ has just published a very good book about the mystical experiences of St. Ignatius Loyola. Listen to Brian speak about his new book.

Young adult Sunday Mass

If you’re looking for an easy way to connect with the Jesuits then I suggest that you attend the Sunday evening 7:30 pm Mass at Gardiner Street, Dublin 1. There is usually a cup of tea after Mass and an opportunity to chat.

Every good wish and blessing
Fr Niall
