Iona Pastoral Centre


Spirituality, Community & Service

The Iona Centre is the pastoral centre of the parish. The official opening ceremony took place in June 2000, presided over by Bishop Eamonn Walsh. The main purpose of the Centre is to accommodate the meetings and workings of the numerous parish committee and groups, to facilitate appropriate courses/programmes to meet the needs in the area, and to rent out accommodation for external conferences and seminars.

The amenities include: a large Assembly Room, plus a screen and projector. There is a small Assembly Room, Meeting Rooms, and a series of smaller rooms. The larger rooms accommodate groups from 20 to 100 people, with the smaller rooms being more appropriate for counselling sessions and small group meetings. The Centre also has a Quiet Room, particularly suited to the pursuit of activities such as Yoga, Retreats for schools or groups, Meditation, and Spiritual Courses.

Since its opening, the Iona Centre has become the focal point of the parish. It is a hive of activity from Autumn to Summer with a multitude of courses and activities. There is a great sense of community about the place and a warm friendly atmosphere. In addition there is an enclosed garden – a veritable oasis of tranquility in the midst of all the bustle.
