Prayer Matters
Dec 1 @ 2:00 pm – 5:30 pm

All Saints’ Parish Centre, Cushendall Road, Ballymena, will hold its 6th annual round table gathering on ‘Prayer Matters’ on Saturday, 1 December from 2.00 – 5.30pm.  All are welcome at this event at which Sr Elaine Kelly from the Adoration Convent on Falls Road, Belfast, will speak about her spiritual journey and prayer life.  She will be joined by Fr Patrick Delargy, parish priest of All Saints, and parishioner Baroness Nuala O’Loan, and the round table will be hosted by Janice McKeith.


Many of us, regardless of age, lead very busy lives, with work, family and social commitments taking up much of our time. Prayer can sometimes be relegated to weekly attendance at church when we join together in various forms of public prayer, but we also need to spend private time nurturing our individual, living relationship with God. A growing relationship can be measured by the quality of its communication. If that happens only in public, it is an indication of a troubled relationship. Our round table gathering will examine ways in which we can make various forms of individual prayer a significant part of our daily lives and so develop a deeper relationship with God.  The organisers hope that those who attend will have an enjoyable afternoon during which they can share their ideas with each other or just listen to the speakers as they explore some different ways of praying.


There’s no charge for the event at which refreshments will be served. A donation basket will be provided for those who wish to contribute towards the costs of running the round table.


To register or for further information, email or phone 028 256 31236, 079 270 89125 or 077 699 74970.
