Caol Ait - In the Celtic tradition a Caol Ait is a place that gives us an opening into the magnificence and wonder of Devine Presence. The Caol Ait, or “Thin Places" are the spots where we see where Heaven and Earth comomg together. St. Paul's parish knows there are Thin Places throughout the islands and we'd be happy to share them with you. St. Paul's is the perfect spot for one day retreat groups.
There is a Celtic saying that heaven and earth are only three feet apart, but in the thin places that distance is even smaller. A thin place is where the veil that separates heaven and earth is lifted and one is able to receive a glimpse of the glory of God.
