Advent Courses 2021

The Dominicans in St Mary’s Priory, Cork, would like to invite you to join us for one of three free online courses during the season of Advent, to help you to prepare for the celebration of the birth of our Saviour at Christmas.

These courses, which will run for four weeks, will take place over Zoom so to be able to participate, you will need to install the free Zoom software (https://zoom.us/download).

The courses will start on Sunday 28th, Monday 29th and Tuesday 30th November at 7pm until 8.30pm and will continue for the following three weeks on these days and at the same time.

Please Note: To register, please email dominicanscork@gmail.com. The closing date for registering for a course is Friday 19th November. It is only possible to sign up for one of the three courses and only the first 60 who sign up will be able to join the courses on Jesus and Mary.

Due to the large numbers of people being contacted it will only be possible for one reply email stating that you have either been booked in for the course or letting you know that the course is full. After the closing date, you will receive another email with information about how to participate in the course you have registered for.

The courses are as follows:

 

An Advent Retreat with the Dominican Fathers (Places not limited)

This will take place on Sunday evenings and will consist of talks on the Sunday Gospels of Advent given by the Dominican Fathers in St Mary’s Priory.

 

Jesus: The Way, the Truth, and the Life with Jeff Cavins and Edward Sri (Limited to 60 places)

This course will take place on Monday evenings, starting the 29th November, facilitated by Fr Matthew Farrell OP.

Filmed on location in the Holy Land, Jesus: The Way, the Truth, and the Life is a new and fresh look at Jesus—who he is, what he is really like, what he taught, and what he did for our salvation. This encounter with Christ will inspire and empower you to centre your entire life on him as you come to know and love him in an ever-deeper and more intimate way.

 

Mary: A Biblical Walk with the Blessed Mother with Edward Sri (Limited to 60 places)

This course will take place on Tuesday evenings, starting the 30th November, facilitated by Fr Damian Polly OP.

Filmed on location in the Holy Land, Mary: A Biblical Walk with the Blessed Mother will place you in the midst of the powerful drama of her earthly life, taking you through her joys … and her sorrows. You will learn how she works in our lives today, drawing us ever closer to her divine Son.

 

We look forward to journeying with you through Advent.

God bless,

The Dominicans of St Mary’s.
