Cork Mondays at Monastery Series Successful
Date: 15 Mar 2016
Venue: Mardyke, Cork
Presentation Brothers Youth Ministry (PBYM) had their inaugural Mondays At The Monastery series from 15th February - 7th March.
The talks welcomed speakers Fiona and Laura from St. Nicholas Trust, John Lonergan (former governor of Mountjoy prison), Catriona Twomey from Cork Penny Dinner, and Fionnbar Walsh - father of Donal Walsh #LiveLife foundation.
The talks were focused on the theme of Mercy at Work - exploring the idea of mercy in everyday life. The talks were well attended and each week built on what was learnt around the theme from the preceding week.
The real, honest testimonies and contributions from the speakers around the work they do and the people they engage with really touched many of the attendees. Over the four weeks, everyone really began to understand the simple practical ideas of mercy and how these practical ideas can be adapted into their everyday lives.
