- Coláiste Iognáid’s 5th Year Kairos retreat was held this year in Dromantine, Newry from 22-25 January. 37 students took part in a full programme of talks, group work and liturgies. The retreat was led by Brendan McManus SJ, assisted by Cathal Doherty SJ, and teachers Elaine Coffey (pictured) and Brian Stewart. Eddie Cosgrove SJ participated as an observer, taking a break from his studies. Feedback from the students shows it was a great success.
- The health of Gerard Keane SJ, of the Malaysia/Singapore region, is in decline. He was admitted to hospital in the last week of November 2009 on emergency. With the advice of the doctor, a heart pace-maker was inserted in his chest. Since then he has been cared for by nursing staff. Please remember him in your prayers.
