New Centre for Celtic Spirituality

The launch was joined by members of the the interchurch Board of Management, local clergy and patrons of the centre

A new centre for the study and practice of celtic spirituality has opened in Northern Ireland.

The Centre for Celtic Spirituality is based at the Navan Centre in Armagh and will offer people the opportunity to learn more about Celtic spirituality through study programmes, pilgrimages and guided visits to sites of interest.

The current study programme will be facilitated by the Director of the Centre for Celtic Spirituality, the Reverend Grace Clunie, author of Sacred Living: Practical Inspirations from Celtic Spirituality for the Contemporary Spiritual Journey.

The Reverend Dr Johnston McMaster, Chair of the Board of Directors, said: "Ours is a time when people, both locally and internationally, are rediscovering the freshness of the Celtic expression of spirituality and faith - not
only for what it has to offer individually - but for it's potential for inspirational Christian community living in reciprocal
relationship with the earth."

    Dual citizenship: Being of this world and of heaven

    The life we live is of a figurative dual citizenship because we exist under two governments: the government of this world and the government of God. To come to this realisation is vital to our everyday living.

    Our testimony has nothing to do with our faithfulness

    We all have a story to tell about God's goodness and faithfulness made evident in our life, and God is most interested in using that story as a powerful witness that will bring salvation and motivation to other people.
