Holy Week Retreat focuses on Judas Iscariot

Monday February 11th 2019

The Church of Ireland Commission on Ministry has organised a Holy Week Retreat from April 15-19 led by the Rt Rev Michael Burrows, Bishop of Cashel, Ferns and Ossory.

The Commission invites you to journey through Holy Week with a central but under-explored player in the Passion drama – Judas Iscariot.

Through addresses, daily worship, silence and contemplation, Bishop Burrows will explore the mystery and problem of Judas. As the week continues, he will challenge us to ask how meeting Judas in a new way may also be an encounter with some unfamiliar aspects of ourselves.

This is a residential retreat, based at The Church of Ireland Theological Institute. It will begin with lunch on the Monday of Holy Week and end on the morning of Good Friday. Retreatants will have the option of attending the Good Friday liturgy at a local parish church, or at one of the Cathedrals in Dublin.

Some places will be available for non-resident participants who wish to join in the whole retreat programme, but commute from home each morning.

The cost of the retreat, including accommodation and all meals, will be €250. The cost for non-resident participants will be €120.
