The Leap of Faith – 11th June 2021

Wethers Well in Cloghmackirkeen, Co. Kerry

On the Leap of Faith this week, June 13th is National Holy Wells Day. We’ll hear from Fr Brian Grogan SJ and Sr Helen Grealy; she is a Sister of Our Lady of the Cenacle, an International Congregation founded to give the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius. Together they will tell us about a virtual event this weekend that draws attention to the role of water in social justice – lovingsisterearth.com

Author Yanky Fachler tells us some of the almost 200 stories he shared with an online audience during the lockdown, each filled with intrigue. And we talk with the incoming President of the Methodist Church in Ireland, The Rev. Dr Sahr Yambasu, as he becomes the first national leader of colour in one of Ireland’s four main churches.
