Shannonbridge Companions – day of reflection

On 25th July the Ursuline Companions of our Shannonbridge community went to Mount Saint Joseph’s Cistercian Abbey in Roscrea for a day of prayer and reflection.  Arriving at 10:30am they began with a welcome cup of coffee followed by input from Dom Richard Purcell, Abbott of Roscrea.  The theme he took was the Rule of Saint Benedict – who said it could be apply to all, not just monks.  It is based on three themes… to seek God…to persevere…to offer a spirit of hospitality.  The Companions joined the community for midday prayer followed by lunch and a walk in the grounds.  An inspirational day!
