St. Patrick’s Breastplate and Celtic Christianity, a day of quiet exploration and inspiration

All are invited to St. Patrick’s Breastplate and Celtic Christianity, a day of quiet exploration and inspiration led by the Rev. Ray Ball, U.S. Guardian of the Community of Aidan and Hilda, from 9 am to 3 pm Saturday, March 16, 2019, at St. Christopher Fort Worth. 

The occasion marks the 25th year since the inception of the Community of Aidan and Hilda (CA&H). Participants will “delve deeply into those prayer experiences that can change our conventional way of experiencing faith into a vital, living relationship with God.”

The day will be based on David Adam’s book The Cry of the Deer, a series of meditations will lead into practical exercises in affirming the presence of God which touches every aspect of our lives.  The book is available on Amazon and is helpful but not necessary. There is no charge and no requirement that participants stay for the entire day. Soup will be provided for lunch, but participants are asked to bring a sandwich. In order for the hosts to prepare properly, please RSVP to Emily Williams at emilywilliams@aol.com.
