Galway Diocese Pastoral Outreach Programme

As we continue our journey through Covid-19, let’s spend four Tuesday nights learning, or relearning, how to pray with Scripture.

12 January, 19 January, 26 January, and 1 February 2021, all at 7.30pm.

These online sessions are facilitated by Fr. Gerard McCarthy, SVD.

The format: 
•    20 minutes on the meaning of prayer;
•    10 minutes for any questions you may have;
•    20 minutes of guided Scripture prayer.

The weekly Scripture text we will pray will be sent to you, along with any relevant notes.

Are you interested? Send an email to  and we will send you a Zoom Link. 

We hope to see you on Tuesday nights.


Happy New Year and Blessings from the Pastoral Outreach Team!
