    Preached Retreat led by Fr Derek Laverty, SSCC

    The Kairos Centre

    God Slipped in "did not our hearts burn within us?"

    Often, like the disciples on the road to Emmaus, we journey through life not fully appreciating how God is with us. This retreat is a reflection of the varieties of religious experience, of the many ways that God can and does come in to our lives in good times and bad.

    Fr Derek Laverty is a religious priest belonging tot he Congregation of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary. The most famous member of the Congregation is Saint Damien of Molokai, the leper priest. Fr. Derek, who was ordained in 1991, is a well-known Retreat Director who has been full time involved in leading days, weekends and preached and directed retreats throughout the UK, Ireland and further afield. He has experience of parish ministry, leadership and working in the third world (Mozambique, Africa).

    This retreat was advertised as being led by  Fr Anthony Fernandes, SFX. Fr Anthony has been asked by his order to take on a new ministry and is very sad not to be able to lead this retreat.

    We are very grateful to Fr Derek Laverty SSCC who has agreed at short notice to lead the retreat, having to reschedule a number of appointments to accommodate us.
