DI is hoping to have a seminar and support meeting with a Family therapist to address the damage and the loss of connection most of those involved know only too well. It will be on from Saturday August 15 3PM till Sunday August 16th 4 PM.
We especially will look at our strategy to bring relief to these families and to see what we can do to assist the large group affected by Elder Abuse, family breakdown and trauma.
We will have a family therapist as this is not just about strategy but the terrible emotional damage that has been done due to the primary abuse done by Christina Gallagher aided and abetted by a priest of the Armagh Archdiocese Fr Gerard McGinnity of Knockbridge, Co Louth.
We will be drawing attention to the failure of the Catholic Church too date to grapple with this issue. We will also be trying to inform government of the needs of these persons as the House of Prayer is in Mayo and Christina’s home of Knockmore is right in the midst of the Taoiseach’s constituency.
We are heartened in recent days in the responses to this issue from the Church but for the moment these discussions must remain confidential.
We will of course only offer private invitations but if there are people out there affected by the House of Prayer please contact us in confidence and we would be happy to have you come.
In other words we wish to have complete anonymity and confidentiality and an environment where people feel free to share their stories. So come and join us……..
Just contact the Director to discuss the seminar
