The Sisters farewell Currajeen, the spring of living water

Currajeen,  Spring of Living Water…

  

  

The time had come for Currajeen, and for those ministering there.  We celebrated the years 1994 to 2019 and rejoiced in all that had happened  –  for those who came across the years and were enlivened in heart and spirit, and for those who had enabled this renewed life to emerge.

We rejoiced in the vision of Margaret Dwyer, and in her wisdom and energy and dreams in initiating the opening of this sacred place , providing a spiritual oasis for many . . .    Much has happened in nourishing the faith and life of God’s people.

  

Saturday saw us gathered at Doreen in a ritual of music, scripture, reflection and sharing of memories  –  with the mixture of emotions that such occasions bring.  We were glad to be there to remember together sacred moments of our own journeys and then to enjoy the company of those gathered in a lovely meal at the Bridge Inn.
