What is Spirituality?
Spirituality is the Catholic way of imagining reality and responding to the world with a profoundly deep sense of awe and responsibility.
An icon is not merely a holy picture. Its meaning goes deeper than the surface reality to the spiritual reality of matter transformed.
Dawn dispels the darkness...
The universe beats to your pace and rhythm Lord. May my life and soul share your breath and heartbeat always.
Lord, your love wells up to surround me and make me safe. Let me drink of your love now and always, Amen.

The Prayer and Spirituality Commission are delighted to bring our mission to the global network. Our work consists of many variables and our activities to date have included Taize Prayer, an Icon exhibition held in the Synod Hall in Armagh which attracted just over 700 adults and families and various school pastoral work.
Future areas of work which we plan to engage include:
- Expansions to existing groups into wider areas
- Charismatic style Prayer
- Healing Prayer services
- Christian Meditation groups
- Weekly Adoration of Blessed Sacrament in every Parish
- Re-introducton of trained Prayer leaders
- Lectio Divina or Scripture Reflections
- Spirituality and Prayer discussion groups
- Spiritual Retreats - parish vicariate, Lent retreat for Youth etc
- Spirituality to encompass a range of age groups
In all, The Prayer and Spirituality Commission are delighted at the future impact and interest our beautiful website will have and we believe that many will be enriched by God's grace and blessing.
