“Thank you for all the thoughtfulness, commitment and the dedicated preparations you invested into creating a special and gentle Advent Retreat.  It was wonderful discovering a space for silence and stillness in the darkness…and finding the blessing of Light therein. I noticed a lovely sense of inner peace and calm which I hadn’t expected or experienced before for many days after my return.”

“There was the right amount of time between sessions and time to ourselves, the content was wonderful, the speakers were excellent”

“I very much enjoyed the Advent Retreat and thank all those involved in the preparation and arranging.”

“The sessions were beautifully led … thanks for looking after us so well”

“I found it a gentle and healing time with lovely people”

“It was wonderful”

“The time of silence was very important”

Honorarium & Expenses

CMH: Ireland is a non-profit organisation that relies on contributions to continue its work, and event honoraria are an important and much-needed source of income. We are often asked how much our services will cost, and in an effort to answer that, we offer the following:

The recommended honorarium for a one-day event is €250*, in addition to costs associated with travel and/or accommodation. However, we are sensitive to the needs of parishes with varying budgets and never want cost to be a deciding factor in bringing an event to your community. Co-hosting with another parish or group can be helpful in sharing the costs and responsibilities of hosting, but ability to pay the suggested amount is not a requirement for event booking. All honoraria should be made payable to The Church’s Ministry of Healing: Ireland (not the speaker). Our speakers do not accept honoraria for personal use.

* We are deeply grateful to parishes that make annual contributions to the ministry, and in recognition of that, we are happy to suggest a reduced honorarium for contributing parishes.

Outreach & Publicity

At your request, CMH: Ireland will create a flyer for your event which you can print and distribute. We encourage the host to actively and broadly publicise the event. This can include sending emails, placing ads or announcements in diocesan magazines or parish newsletters, and promoting the event through social media such as Facebook and Twitter. We also encourage hosts to reach out to other local churches and organisations who may be interested.
