Webteam: May 2016
Praying the Keeils week in 2016 took place between Sat 21st — Sat 28th May.
People shared together as they walked, explored sacred sites, learned about our Celtic heritage and enjoyed fun and fellowship together. The full programme for 2016 may be downloaded from the resources page.
During this week, there were opportunities to visit some of the ancient keeill sites on the Island. Many are in places which are lonely and peaceful, in the words of Psalm 46, "Be still and know that I am God."
2016 was the eleventh successive year of Praying the Keeills. Included were whole day walks on the Saturdays, shorter walks, a coach outing, visits to some of the keeills and an illustrated talk by Andrew Johnson, of Manx National Heritage, on the Manx keeills.
