Our annual retreat for students involved in S.H.A.R.E took place on Easter Tuesday at Mardyke House in Cork city. A dozen students took part in this year's retreat which had 'The Journey to Emmaus' as its theme.

Brother Martin, the spiritual director to S.H.A.R.E, and Treise from our Youth Ministry Office led the day of reflection.

"We included a mixture of prayer, Scripture, time for discussion and outdoor activities," explains Treise. "We also used guided meditation as a way of exploring the Gospel stories in a deeper way. The weather was great so we were able to do our own Emmaus walk in the nearby Fitzgerald Park!"

S.H.A.R.E is a student-led charity founded by the late Brother Jerome Kelly. It supports the elderly of Cork city by providing accommodation, services and friendship.

Our Youth Ministry needs more adult volunteers to help run activities in Cork city. If you'd like more information, please contact Treise at youth@PresentationBrothers.org
