Recently, on the 23r to 25th of February six Dominican friars, two Dominican sisters (from St. Saviour’s Priory, Limerick) and about 20 young adults gathered in Knock Shrine, Co Mayo, for our 3rd Credo (which means I believe) weekend to date.
Over the last year, Dominican brothers have invited young adults from all around Ireland to come on a weekend retreat of prayer, study and recreation. Credo weekends focus on teaching the Catholic faith with a particular emphasis on the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The most recent Credo weekend saw talks given by a variety of speakers on a range of topics. Sister Maura Grace from Limerick spoke about the concept of happiness, Fr. Ciaran, from Sligo, gave a very interesting talk on the history of philosophy and Fr. Brian, Fr. Alan and Br. Matthew, all from Dublin, gave informative talks on the topics of The Last Things, Grace and the Eucharist, respectively.
Many university students attended the weekend, particularly from Trinity College where Fr. Alan is chaplain. The Divine Office and Eucharistic adoration also formed part of the weekend schedule as well as plenty of free time for relaxation and a very enjoyable social get together on Saturday evening for a drink and some friendly chat. The weekend was very much enjoyed had by all who attended and we hope to have our next Credo event in the month of June in Glencomeragh, Co. Waterford.
