A collection of articles that feature three of places that are sacred in the Christian tradition, a place of pilgrimage and two monasteries: St Patrick’s Purgatory, Lough Derg, Co Donegal; the Graan Monstery, Co Fermanagh and Holy Cross Monastery, Rostrevor, Co Down. Each of them is a sacred place and a refuge, welcoming all who come to them, whether they come to pray and meditate, seek spiritual guidance or for penance and reconciliation. Viewed from outside monasteries and places of pilgrimage often seem to be cloaked in an aura of mystery. In these articles we’ll glimpse inside their world and their ministries.
