Retreat & Quiet Days
Our Retreat and Quiet Days are held in the spacious and comfortable house.
The Retreat Days are themed and led by our spiritual director or a visiting retreat giver. They work with a theme and allow time for exploration through silence, prayer and creativity.
The Quiet Days allow you to spend the day in quiet contempaltion with others alongside you sharing the beauty and tranquility of the house, gardens and surrounding countryside. There are prayer resources, art and craft materials and riverside and country walks from the door. Depending on the day there may also be optional times group prayer such as Stations of the Cross or optional spiritual direction sessions.
As St Teresa of Calcutta said
"God is the friend of silence because He is not found in noise and restlessness. The essential thing is not what we say, but what God says to us and through us. Jesus always waits for us in silence, and in this silence He speaks to us. He will speak to our soul and there we will hear His voice."
