We are joined this week on the programme by Monica Brown and Hilary Musgrave who talk to us about their ministry which creatively encourages people to make space for the divine in their everyday lives.

Monica is a composer, teacher, facilitator, story teller and community animator. "Her workshops, retreats, faith celebrations and concerts leave people wanting more of the God she somehow manages to make real and tangible through her songs and creatively integrated presentations. By maintaining an empowering link to the Christ of Scriptures, Monica has pioneered a creative approach to spirituality, bringing on board mime, story, ritual and imagery, to embody the Jesus that truly liberates."

Monica has composed and recorded 16 collections of songs for children, youth and adults (including the universally appealing "One People One Land") and has written and produced videos and other resources in the area of faith formation, liturgy and ritual. Monica is the founding director of Emmaus Productions and is also the creator and editor of Emmaus Productions liturgy websites www.liturgyplanning.com and www.liturgyplanningimages.com which provide images, creative rituals, liturgies and meditations for schools, parishes and communities.

Hilary Musgrave is a Sister of Charity from Ireland. She has worked in Education both as a teacher and a principal for many years. In more recent years, following her studies in a Masters degree in Pastoral Ministry and Spirituality, at Boston College, Hilary works as a facilitator in creative spirituality and integrates sacred clowning into her ministry. She also uses photography and imagery by way of engaging people in their appreciation of the sacred in their lives. Hilary is currently the Director of Croi-Ruah Creative Spirituality Centre, Dublin
