Notre Dame Folk Choir

A BIG thank you to everyone who helped and took part in our exciting and joyful celebrations with the University of Notre Dame Folk Choir. We were delighted to welcome the choir, led by Steve Warner, and Friends of Notre Dame to Harold’s Cross for a lively and vibrant few days. Special thanks to our host families, who made the students feel so at home.
Well done to our House of Brigid Fellows Geoff, Rikki and Susanna for organising the event.

How Far the Horizon
You want to travel?
You want to set foot on new lands, and walk along the world’s edge?
You want to live and to satisfy your thirst for more abundant life,
To fling wide the gates of your mind and be enriched by wisdom.
Travel where you wish to go, scale all the mountains and cross every ocean.
Remember this only:
The miles are ahead of you
The obstacles are within you.
Life is a voyage. Some people sit and watch, heedless of the heart’s urge and the spirit’s deepest need to launch out. Others drift here and there on the waves. They have chosen the safety of the shallows and turned their back on the promise of the deep. A sturdy few hammer their own craft together, cast off from the land and go. These know how to reach out and receive the gift of life.
