The power of Human Encounter. Corrymeela Sunday 2017

We are delighted to share our resources for Corrymeela Sunday with you. Corrymeela Sunday occurs every year on the Sunday closest to St. Patrick’s day. 

This year the texts focus on Human Encounter, and so we offer you reflections on the readings, some prayers and a collect to gather in those readings in light of the work and mission of Corrymeela.

Pádraig, the leader of the Corrymeela Community, will be participating in some events at Leicester Cathedral, together with the wonderful people from the Cathedral, on the 18th and 19th March as part of our annual celebrations of Corrymeela Sunday.
