The Diocesan Prayer and Spirituality Commission are delighted that their exhibition Praying your Beads is currently being hosted in the gym hall at Holy Trinity College Cookestown and from Friday at St Pius Xth College Magherafelt. Students, staff and parents have been visiting. Fr Declan says it is a real blessing how young people are so interested and moved by this experience. Staff in the past have commented on how the presence of the exhibition has raised the profile and spirit of the RE department in the school. The exhibition is then moving to St Joseph’s P S in Muirheavnamor Dundalk. Other schools have booked it for CSW 17 and also for lent 17 and May 17. It is great there is so much renewed interest in prayer.
Pictures show some of the display items including a relic of St Oliver Plunkett. Holy Icons are also featured as well as beads for praying the Rosary, the Jesus Prayer and praying the Stations of the Cross.
