Located at 125, Castlegate Way, the Kairos Centre is a Diocesan owned apartment in Adamstown. It was placed at the disposal of St. Patrick's Parish some years ago as a facility for prayer and gatherings, and has until now been staffed by Sr. Mary Ward of the religious sisters known as the Servants of the Mother of God. Sr. Mary has now retired from her role and we wish her every blessing in her retirement.
We have been fortunate to secure the services of a replacement for Sr. Mary and she has kindly written a short introduction below.
The Kairos Centre will hold an open evening on Wednesday 16th November from 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm. This is aimed at the residents of Adamstown area and surrounding developments and will be an opportunity to visit the Centre, meet Sr. Angela and the Priests of the Parish for a chat and a cuppa. The Blessed Sacrament will be reserved at the Centre for prayer.
Sr. Angela Dolan says hello ...
I am a Presentation Sister and a native of Co Galway. I have been in Secondary Teaching for most of my life, much of this in Colaiste Bride, Clondalkin.
I was privileged to work in Zambia for fifteen years. Some of my work there included: teaching, working with Women's Groups, Prayer Groups and visiting women in Prison. In later years I accompanied young Zambian novices on their Presentation Journey. It was a profoundly challenging time for me on many levels. Often, I had to re-examine and question my own beliefs and values yet it was a time of great enrichment and blessing.
In 2014 I found myself back again in Colaiste Bride this time in a pastoral/spiritual role.
Now, another new venture awaits me! I hope to work part-time in 125 Kairos Parish Centre, Castlegate Way. The Centre provides hospitality, a space to chat, to pray and to have conversations on what else might be a support for you!
Looking forward to meeting you there!
Sr Angela Dolan PBVM.
Do please come along to meet on Wednesday 16th November.
