The newly renovated La Verna Centre, the Franciscan Retreat House, Rossnowlagh, Co Donegal, was blessed and re-dedicated by Dr Philip Boyce, Bishop of Raphoe, on 9 May. Friars, staff and friends of La Verna gathered for the happy celebration.

The newly expanded retreat house now includes a beautiful new chapel, enlarged dining room and spacious conference room, and newly landscape gardens.

In its beautiful setting overlooking Rossnowlagh beach and the mountains of Donegal, La Verna is the ideal place to restore the soul either at one the organised retreat held throughout the years or with a few peaceful days of rest and solitude.
