Chant Days with Noirin Ni Riain 2012

February 11th

“This will be a tranquil day for everyone, as through the eyes of the psalmist, we will bless and give thanks for the earth and our being. You will carry away in the pocket of your heart a rich treasury of prayers that will walk with you forever.” Noirin Ni Riain

This course will explore the psalms, these age-old songs of praise which are at the core of the Judaeo-Christian tradition. It is appropriate that such an exploration should take place in the shadow of the Benedictine monastery where the psalms are the heart and soul of the liturgies here. The workshop will conclude with Vespers in the Abbey Church, where the psalms that Noirin will introduce you to, will be sung by the community.

June 16th Bloomsday

At a time when the Solstice sun spreads its delight around, Noirin celebrates the litugical feast of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary and the writer James Joyce. Don’t miss this opportunity to kindle creativity and spirituality in your heart and mind.
