Weekly Prayer and Share with Fr. David Weakliam .

Thursdays 11am-12pm

We gather in the quiet room at the centre. We commence with a short directed mediation to lead us into inner silence . We read a passage of scripture , reflect in silence and then share as little as we wish, in the manner of Lectio Divina . We give a few minutes to some appropriate teaching and conclude with intercession and thanksgiving.



Indian head massage is based on the ayurvedic system of healing which has been practiced in India for over a thousand years . It provided Indian families with relaxation and healing on a daily basis, as well as playing a part in rituals such as weddings and births, not to mention everyday events like a trip to the barber.

How does it work?

The aim of Indian head massage is to release the stress that has accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck and shoulders.

price €10.00 for 20 minutes



Meditation is one of the proven alternative therapies. It can be broadly classified under the mind-body medicine.

More and more doctors are prescribing meditation as a way to lower blood pressure, improve exercise performance in people with angina, help people with asthma breathe easier, relieve insomnia and generally relax the everyday stresses of life. Meditation is a safe and simple way to balance a person’s physical, emotional, and mental states. It is simple; but can benefit everybody.

The use of Meditation for healing is not new. Meditative techniques are the product of diverse cultures and peoples around the world. It has been rooted in the traditions of the world’s great religions. In fact, practically all religious groups practice meditation in one form or another. The value of Meditation to alleviate suffering and promote healing has been known and practiced for thousands of years.
