Dunloy & Cloughmills Parish – P7 Retreat

Living Youth were recently asked to provide and facilitate a Confirmation retreat for the young people in the Parish of Dunloy and Cloughmills. The retreat took place at St. Joseph’s Primary in Dunloy and St. Brigid’s Primary Cloughmills also came along for the day. There were 47 young people in attendance. The P7s are making their Confirmation in April so the retreat was based around this theme. The session was filled with games, activities and quizzes. Conor taught everyone “The Tree Dance” and this was a massive hit! The young people participated in prayer, reflection and meditation while looking at the importance of Pentecost and the different gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit. The day concluded with Mass at 1.30pm with Fr. Blayney. The young people read the readings and prayers and they sang (and danced) enthusiastically throughout. It was truly a great day and we hope all the P7s have a wonderful Confirmation day. Thanks again to everyone in Dunloy & Cloughmills for inviting us and for their warm welcome.
