Youth Retreat

Youth Retreat - 29th of January 2010


The Youth Ministry of the Irish Province of the Augustinians hosted a retreat for young people on the 29th and 30th of January 2010.  Despite a poor attendance the event was very much enjoyed by those who participated.  As well as praying and sharing together we had a lot of time to catch up on what has happened since our pilgrimage to Italy and even shared an Italian meal.

Very importantly; we began our planning for AYE 2010 - the International Augustinian Youth Encounter - which will take place in London next August.  The Irish group has been asked to prepare one of the Morning Prayer sessions which is a great honour and something which we will have to prepare well, taking account of the many languages and cultures that will be present during the festival.

Photos taken during the weekend will be in a gallery on the website very soon.

Another important part of the event is the Festival of Nations when each country is asked to express its culture and heritage to all those present.  Plans are already underway for the Irish group and we hope that all those who will travel to London will take full part in making this a truly memorable occasion.

Details about costs etc will be published on this site soon but please let me know as soon as you are certain about your intention to participate.
