August Bank Holiday Retreat
Date / Time: Friday 24th August 2018
Bread Of Heaven
‘Bread’ appears in the bible 306 times and has long been a staple of the diet; Benedict’s rule gives instruction on the quantity each should receive. During this silent retreat we will spend time in prayer, with music, art and literature, with Jesus in the Most Holy Sacrament of the altar – and we might bake some bread along the way!
Leaders: Fr Aidan CR & Br Fabian nCR
The cost of this retreat is £190

CSMV & CR Joint Retreat (Wantage)
Date / Time: Friday 12th October 2018
Praying in God’s Creation
CR has longstanding links with the Community of St Mary the Virgin, Wantage. In 2018 we are holding two joint retreats, one at Mirfield with Sr Elizabeth Jane CSMV and Br Philip CR and one at Wantage with Sr Stella CSMV and Br Jacob CR.
This retreat is at Wantage.
We are created by God for love, and to enjoy the gifts in creation that God has made. Our primary relationship is with God, the author of life and creation. Relationships are a natural thing, so they need to be nurtured and have time to grow.
We live in a world that we have made busy with the activities of work and daily life. God can get pushed aside and the gifts of creation used as a means to survive the hustle and bustle of daily life. This is not good because these precious gifts of God will struggle to develop if they are competing with other more boisterous activities. But does it have to be this way?
During this retreat we will reflect together on various approaches to prayer, and ponder the rhythms of life and the attitudes that have inspired others to grow spiritually in God’s creation.
Led by Sr Stella CSMV and Br Jacob CR
The cost for this retreat is £140
