“Entering into what is there” – A Parish Retreat

Posted on Thursday 13th April, 2017

Time flies and we do not always have the opportunity to find peaceful moments of calm in our lives in which to deepen our relationship with God. This parish retreat is a chance to set aside a couple of days together in a tranquil and beautiful setting with the focus on entering into the Divine presence and reflecting with God on what is important to us. There will be daily services and we will be led into both meditative and contemplative prayer. There will also be time for our own prayer and meditation. The majority of the retreat will be in silence, giving us a chance to connect with ourselves and God in new ways – to enter into what is there. I hope that many will want to join in this adventure of discovery which will renew us both as individuals and as a church community.
