Retreats

During this “Journey of Faith” all Christians everywhere are encouraged to look seriously at their journey that began with our baptism. For most of us this Journey eventually takes us to the reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation. The preparation for this sacrament is a time for the candidate and their parents to look again at the promises that were made at Baptism.

Reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation is the time when the candidates have the opportunity to state for themselves that they “Confirm” what was promised for them by their parents and god-parents.

The Retreat Day that we offer at the Father Peyton Centre for those who are receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation is a time for us to reinforce what they are being taught at home and in school about the sacrament.

Students will be engaged in activities,discussions,prayer,storytelling,music and audio visuals, all geared to make further understanding the commitment that they are about to make.

The Retreat Team who conduct the retreats is experienced in presenting a day that is educational, entertaining and prayerful. Please consider making reservations for your Confirmation Class to come to the Fr. Peyton Centre for a day of retreat.

Youth Retreats

Youth Retreat Programmes for Secondary Schools and National Schools

These day-long programmes can be tailored to meet the needs of a particular school whether for a First Holy Communion or Confirmation Class or for students preparing for their Leaving Certificate or just for a school outing. The day will include age-appropriate group activities and discussions, presentations by the Spiritual Director of the Fr. Peyton Centre, prayer and music. Our goal is to have a positive experience with the young people who come here in a setting that is conducive to helping them know themselves and those around them.

We want them to celebrate life and to know that God loves them.

School Lunches

We provide school snacks for one hundred and ten pupils per day. There are two rural schools availing of the service. Those schools are in the primary schools “disadvantaged” category. The Fr. Peyton Centre is contracted by the schools to provide this service; they in turn are grant aided by the Department of Education.

On speaking with the school principals they see this service as a great incentive to children to eat a healthy diet and are anxious that the service continues. We intend to approach other schools within a ten-mile radius and request them to investigate the possibility of them been included for the service
