Dana to speak at Cursillo anniversary

Dana Rosemary Scallon will be among the guest speakers at a conference in the city this weekend to mark 30th anniversary of the founding of the Cursillo movement in the Diocese of Derry.

To mark this occasion the Derry Diocesan Secretariat are hosting a special Renewal weekend at Termonbacca Carmelite Retreat Centre.

The weekend begins on Thursday evening, September 24th, with a Thanksgiving Mass in St Eugene’s Cathedral for the gift of Cursillo to the Derry Diocese.

The weekend proper opens on Friday morning at Termonbacca and continues until Sunday September 27.

Dana Rosemary Scallon will speak in the marquee on Saturday afternoon about her faith journey.

Dana, a much loved daughter of Derry, has lived her life in the glare of the public gaze but during all that time she has never shied away from displaying her commitment to her faith.

The final closing Mass will be held in St. Eugene’s Cathedral at 5pm on Sunday.

It will be celebrated by Bishop Donal Mc Keown and all are welcome.
