Association of Catholics in Ireland Zoom – Rewilding Church:
Creating Spaces to Nurture Faith with Patricia Higgins

Zoom – Thurs June 1st at 8.00 p.m.

Could the image of ‘rewilding’ offer hope to those concerned about adult faith development?

In environmental terms rewilding is defined as a process that’s nature-led and human-supported. Would an analogous ‘lay-led’ process of creating spaces to nurture faith be a way forward for faith?

Patricia Higgins thinks so. A former management consultant, Patricia has worked in a range of youth ministry roles, and has co-founded a number of faith-based organisations, including ACI, Slí Eile (Irish Jesuit Faith & Justice Initiative for 18-35 year olds) and more recently, the gospel-based faith-sharing group, Still Point. She is an Interfaith Minister, and also a trained Spiritual Accompanier in the Ignatian tradition. She has a passion for working with others to create spaces that help people to connect to themselves, to each other and to God. She is especially interested in working with those who may feel ‘over Church’ but not ‘over God’.

Her experience of working with others to create participative, inclusive spaces to explore and discover faith makes her passionate about how these can support people to act for a more just (and joy-filled) world.
