The primary purpose of this centre is to provide for individuals and groups.
“To come away from…………”
To a quiet reflective space of rest.
No agenda imposed.
To be still, silent and alone.
To treat the neglected sacred self.
To acknowledge the need for “something more”.
Our deepest hunger and thirst are from within.
And will never be satisfied from without.

Slí an Chroí Facilities

  • Accommodation: 22 rooms: 30 beds

  • Two en-suite rooms especially suited for individual space / retreat

  • Two self-catering kitchens

  • Oratory and meeting rooms

  • Spacious grounds with walks

We provide a counselling service here at Sophia. Lack of money should never deny one the opportunity of counselling. Our service is according to each persons' individual means which makes it affordable to everyone.

 

In every family there is pain and struggle. It is very necessary to name and claim the issues. To deny or pretend they are not there is being irresponsible, and they do not go away. We believe that issues when addressed competently and safely can be resolved.

We wish to facilitate people to recover their sense of Self. To journey towards a better self-understanding, empowering of self and freedom. We believe every person has the resources within them to take control of their lives. To recognise and own our brokenness is not a stigma but being responsible.


Confidentiality is an essential dimension to our service, in a safe non-judgemental atmosphere…

Welcome

Celebrating Spring and St. Bridget at Sli an Chroi

For the first event of the New Year and New decade in Slí an Chroí (in St Patrick’s, Kiltegan, Co Wicklow), we will celebrate the feast of St. Bridget on her feast day February 1st, and also welcome the first day of Spring. It will be an opportunity for me, Pat Murphy, to introduce myself and get to know all the old friends of Slí an Chroí as well as welcoming new ones. Since it is the beginning of Spring we will provide an opportunity to do some voluntary Spring cleaning for the more enthusiastic! Our tentative programme for the day would look like the following:

3pm - Arrival and welcoming cup of tea/coffee

3.30 - Spring cleaning (Voluntary)

5.30 - Ritual: St Bridget brings the Spring

6.30 - Supper followed by fireside chat.

You are welcome to come for all or part of the day. Invite your friends too.
