The Pontifical Irish College hosted a time of reflection, renewal and relaxation, from 14th to 18th September 2015, for priests availing of the opportunity to spend some days in Rome. The course provided participants with an opportunity to visit Rome while deepening their theological awareness through lectures and lived experience of the Church and City. This year’s course supported priests who are working in parishes and other pastoral assignments to be updated on preaching, on the promotion of vocations to the priesthood and on the overall care of the priest in the context of new pastoral challenges.

Those leading this year’s course included:

Fr. John Harris, OP, Regent of Studies of the Irish Dominican Province
Fr. Stephen Langridge, Vocations Director, Archdiocese of Southwark and Chair of Conference of Vocation Directors of England and Wales
Sr. Brenda Dolphin, Department of Psychology, Pontifical Gregorian University, Rome
Fr. Tom Norris, Pontifical Irish College, Rome

Liturgies were celebrated each day in the College Chapel with its beautiful Marko Rupnik mosaics and elsewhere. A general audience with the Holy Father, a visit to Subiaco, Castlegandolfo and the English College Villa at Palazzola, a day of reflection and recollection as well as an opportunity to enjoy many of the artistic and cultural delights of Rome formed part of this year’s programme.
