Darkness Into Light 2021 will take place at sunrise on the morning of 8th May. Everyone is encouraged to join Pieta House and Electric Ireland for Nathan’s Walk and to don their yellow t-shirts and take part in the event at a time and in a location that suits them. We are so looking forward to sharing this very special sunrise with you. This year you can choose to sign up for a special sunrise event - walk, swim, bike or simply share your sunrise moment - or you can take part in the Darkness Into Light Challenge – when you select this option, we’re waiving the sign-up fee for anyone who pledges to fundraise €150. Get creative with your activity, and remember that no matter how you choose to take part this year, you’ll be giving the gift of hope to those in your community in suicidal crisis, or self-harming.

God, give us eyes to see
the beauty of the Spring,
And to behold Your majesty
in every living thing –
And may we see in lacy leaves
and every budding flower
The Hand that rules the universe
with gentleness and power –
And may this Easter grandeur
that Spring lavishly imparts
Awaken faded flowers of faith
lying dormant in our hearts,
And give us ears to hear, dear God,
the Springtime song of birds
With messages more meaningful
than man’s often empty words
Telling harried human beings
who are lost in dark despair –
‘Be like us and do not worry
for God has you in His care.
