Church of Ireland Theological Institute Offers
Spirituality for Christian Discipleship
The Church of Ireland Theological Institute has announced details of a new four week online course. The course offers resources for your spiritual life and opportunities to learn new practices of Christian Discipleship to resource your faith during social distancing.
Weekly meetings through Zoom led by members of CITI’s academic staff will include a presentation and interactive discussion about practices of Christian spirituality and will conclude with an exercise or activity for you to try at home. By gathering, praying and learning with the same group of Christians weekly, you will also receive encouragement and fellowship and offer these gifts to others.
The course will run on Monday mornings from 11:00am to 12:00 noon, beginning on June 8.

     It is with regret that the board of Here2Help announces that it will close permanently on 31st December 2020. Upon closure, files and records concerned with adoption will be transferred to an appropriate body to facilitate a tracing service in the future. It is proposed, but not yet confirmed that the recipient body would be the Adoption Authority of Ireland (AAI)
On behalf of my colleagues on the board and all at Here2Help, I would like to offer sincere thanks to all who stayed in touch with the agency and who donated to our services over many years.
Future Donations
While Here2Help will close its doors, our sister agency PACT which provides adoption services on behalf of Tusla remains open. Should you wish to make a charitable donation, I would ask that you please consider PACT which is located at :

May I wish you and yours good health and good wishes for the future.
Yours sincerely
David Godfrey
