Lent 2011

 From Pain to Promise, ‘Journeying Together in Hope’

<br />Ash Wednesday, 9th March
Ennis Cathedral @ 7.30pm Brendan Mc Gee

Brendan McGee – You probably walked by him on the ha’penny bridge crouched cup in hand begging. He sat on the stony steps for three years; a combination of a broken home, a heroin addiction that he was powerless against. Brendan found a sense of spirituality in Merchant’s Quay Treatment Facility in High Park, Drumcondra. He has completed a Certificate with Distinction in Drug Counselling Theory and Intervention Skills. He works as a Support Worker with Casadh, a community organisation aiding in rehabilitation and education.
