Sr. Helen Prejean

This year one of the Speakers is  Sr. Helen Prejean (The author of the book 'Dead Man Walking'). She will talk on “Who is Jesus?”. Give a workshop on 'Environmental Ethics'. Many workshops, prayer and the usual Reconciliation evening - with the opportunity for  confession, prayer for healing and the Candlelight Procession - will follow. On Sunday people are sent forth with Helen's talk on 'Faith in action' and the closing Eucharist. In this difficult year for all Catholics in Ireland, we hope the journey will take us from Walking By Faith, through to Trusting in God on to Hope for the journey.

Some rscj and friends are joining RSCJ Projects in Europe supporting pilgrims on the Chemin Saint Jacques in St. Chely D'Aubrac in France and in Santiago de Compostela, as the Pilgrims complete the Santiago Way (El Camino) and begin to search for what's next.

In St. Chely the rscj offer a service of presence and prayer in the parish church each evening to the pilgrims passing through, to the villagers and visitors, while they also seek to build community together in a relaxed athmosphere..

 At Santiago de Compostela (Spain)  July 2010

In Santiago de Compostela the rscj and friends offer support, accompanying the pilgrims with a service of listening to them in their search for the meaning of it all, talking about the Santiago Way and together enabling ourselves to find the new future opened up by the experience. As part of this they offer reflection and prayer in the evenings, while they also seek to build community with each other in service.
