CEIST Holy Week Retreat 2014

We return to the Tearmann Spirituality centre in Glendalough, once again, for our annual CEIST Retreat which will take place at the beginning of Holy Week 2013. The retreat will run from Palm Sunday 13th April to Tuesday 15th April.

For the past four years members of our CEIST School Communities, Chairpersons, Principals and staffs, (past and present) have joined us in the Valley of the Saints, expertly guided by Fr. Michael Rogers and Sr. Breda Ahern CP for these days of pilgrimage.

Our experiences have been very different – both in the content of the retreat and the vagaries of the weather! However, on previous occasions the opportunity to take time out at this most sacred time of the year has been deeply appreciated by those who have taken part. 

Some of the feedback we have received included the following:

“A most wonderful experience. It gave me many great opportunities to delve into my inner self and realise what’s really important in my life”. 

“I so enjoyed the peace and calm”. 

“Such an enriching experience I will never forget it”. 

“I experienced a beautiful God once again breathing his love, life and energy into me”. 

“Time to reflect and go on the journey inward and outward”. 

“I found that even though time was short I got the chance to refuel my batteries and enter into the true spirit of this great season”.

If you would like to join us for this very special introduction to Holy Week, or for more information, please contact Siobhan Stopes: E-mail: or Tel: 01-6510350. 

The cost of the retreat, which includes accommodation and all meals is €150.00.
