Inspiration behind Muintir Mhuire

Our Community has come out of many years of prayer and experience. It has come as a response to one of the great needs of our time.

It began totally dependent on Divine  Providence, with little funds assets or materials, but with great trust  in a loving God who knows all our needs

What we do

The main emphasis of our community is to provide a place of  “Time out”. It has been our experience that a balance between the Spiritual, Mental and Physical sides of life enhances the development of the individual.             
It is important to note that during the 16 centuries of Christianity in Ireland before us,  people lived a practical and prayerful life. In this contemplative mode, Christian communities and settlements became centres for learning,  schools of holiness, storehouses for books and knowledge, and excellent producers of craft, music and art. It was from these communities that villages and towns developed giving us the society that we are now emerging from.
                
The Muintir Mhuire  Community strives to bring about a more integrated approach to life,  where all good and new advances, those in technology and science, in media and communications are fully appreciated and put to good use,  while at the same time reviving some of the above-mentioned treasures of our ancestors. These treasures revolve around the idea of Muintir as where everyone cares and together Pray and Work for the good of each other.

Under the Patronage of Most Rev, Dr William Crean.

Supported by a group of supporters and benefactors set up for the assistance and development of Muintir Mhuire.

Our prayer program explores the richness of the Catholic tradition. We are convinced that in order to find true happiness we must be in contact with the One who created us. We are also convinced that the God who created us is the Father of Jesus Christ and that He has revealed everything to us in Him. It follows that the high point of our prayer is the celebration of Holy Mass.
As our name clearly shows we are a Marian Community. This too comes from the Irish tradition of seeing Mary as the one who leads us to her son and who in every age has shown her concern for us, her children.

Each day we pray the Rosary and spend time in Adoration. We also pray Morning and Evening prayer from the Liturgy of the Hours.

We always prepare for the celebration of Holy Mass by praying one part of the Rosary.

After each Holy Mass, we kneel and pray the Creed and the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory be to the Father, seven times.
We do this because we see the need to prepare ourselves by having a time of quiet reflective prayer before Holy Mass begins, and the need to spend time in thanksgiving after Holy Mass ends.

Skilled Work

It is our aim as the project develops that people will have a wide choice of work. Traditionally there was a Blacksmith working on the farm producing farm implements, hinges, horseshoes and many more metal objects.

                          

Offering a  meaningful, balanced working life for everyone, is our endeavour. Each person’s contribution is important and varies according to their individual talents. Through one’s work, everyone can gain dignity and develop self-worth.
