Who We Are

FCJ Spirituality House, formerly Ibriken Lodge, is part of the ministry of the FCJ sisters in Ireland. For generations it has been a gentle haven for spiritual searchers. Here we make time to appreciate God’s creation, to share unrushed time together and to accompany one another on our own particular faith journey.

All are welcome to enter into the spirit of this lovely home by the sea, where we can so clearly see ‘nature as a magnificent book in which God speaks to us’ each morning (Pope Francis, LS12).
