Prayer Groups

Nights of Worship

Every Monday night (7:00-7:45pm) we provide an opportunity for the Holy Spirit to gather, breathe, and bring us to life! Through prayer, adoration, and worship music, we invite the Holy Spirit to breathe into us what we are lacking! Come join us and experience for yourself the refreshment of the Spirit!

Direction For Our Times

Direction For Our Times was founded by Anne, a lay apostle. In 2003, she began receiving messages from Jesus by Inner Locution during which He instructed her to keep a journal of their conversations. In obedience to the Lord, she submitted all of her writings to the Church and her local bishop in Ireland who had appointed a commission to investigate them for approval. For further information and insight into Anne, you can check out the Direction For Our Times website where most of her writings are available for download. All of her writings have been approved by the Church as "free from doctrinal or moral error" and have been given the permission to be publisized. If you have questions or are interested in becoming part of this lay apostolate movement, please contact us!
