Fr Laurence Freeman OSB Visits Balally Tuesday 13th September, 2022.







Fr Laurence Freeman, Director of the World Community for Christian meditation will visit Balally . Fr Laurence , who is successor of Fr John Main, is the foremost exponent and teacher of Christian meditation alive today. As one parishioner said” it is the equivalent of a visit to Buddhists of the Dali Lama” . Indeed they are close friends.

Fr Dermot and I will concelebrate Mass with Fr Laurence at 9.45 am on Monday next 12 September. We will bless those going on the Hospitality Holiday and listen to a short talk / meditation by Fr Lauence.

He will spend time with me in the schools and meditate with the children and teachers. On TUESDAY 13 he will speak in the church at 7 PM. All welcome

Please feel free to invite non church going family members and friends. Meditation appeals to many .

Fr Laurence will help to to begin to prepare for the future with our mission of MEDITATION and ACTION.

Fr Laurence will be joined by a young member of WCCM from America , Nick who is currently living in Bonnveaux with Fr Laurence and the community, and Emma our new Youth Minister.
