DIOCESE OF KERRY NOTICE REGARDING ARDFERT RETREAT CENTRE: As a result of Covid-19 it was not possible to run any retreat or residential programmes in the Ardfert Retreat Centre. In August 2020 and following a request from Talbot Grove (now The Grove), Castleisland, a lease was entered into with them for the use of Ardfert Retreat Centre for an initial term of one year. The Grove has now approached the Diocese about acquiring Ardfert Retreat Centre. Following negotiations, the Diocese wishes to advise that it is proposed to sell the Ardfert Retreat Centre to the Grove. The Diocese has had a long association with Talbot Grove and their mission is compatible with the spirit of the Gospel. After many years great service, Sr. Elizabeth has retired as director of Ardfert Retreat Centre, and we wish to thank her and indeed her predecessors for their work in the Centre. We also wish to thank the various members of staff, volunteers and the contact people for their work and dedication down the years. Lastly, we thank the people of the Diocese and especially the people of Ardfert for their support of Ardfert Retreat Centre since it opened its doors in 1981. We would ask you to join with us in wishing all in The Grove every success as a new chapter opens in the life of Ardfert Retreat Centre.
