May the grace of Our Lord Jesus Christ be forever in our hearts!
I write to make you aware of a unique program on spiritual direction in the Vincentian tradition offered at All Hallows College in Dublin, Ireland. Sponsored by the confreres at All Hallows, the Daughters of Charity of Ireland, and the Vincentian Center for Spirituality at Work in Denver Colorado, USA, this program can be taken for personal enrichment or as a certificate program with credits from All Hallows. As you discuss opportunities for ongoing formation with your council and confreres, I believe this new endeavor is worthy of consideration. As it will be given in English, that will be a prerequisite for attendance and active participation.
The enclosed letter provides specific information regarding the goals, dates, and cost of this program. I believe that participation in this program will not only serve to enhance the appreciation of your confreres to be spiritual direction in the Vincentian tradition, but it will also make a lasting positive impact on the apostolates in your province.
Let us continue to pray for one another and seek the intercession of our Holy Founder!
Your brother in St. Vincent,
G. Gregory Gay, C.M.
