SIENA – Young Adult Programme 2018/19. “Become who you are meant to be and set the world on fire”. St. Catherine of Siena
If you are at a cross-roads in your life; just finished school, at or just finished third level education, working, unemployed, on a gap year, not satisfied with your career choice or looking for something more … then the SIENA programme is for you. SIENA is designed to help young adults (18-35) to discover who they are meant to be and what path in life God may be calling them to. Whether marriage or single life, priesthood or diaconate, religious or consecrated life, God has a plan for each one of us that will help us to thrive and not just survive. You are invited to set aside six Saturday afternoons 2pm to 6:30pm between November 2018 and May 2019 to take part in the programme.
