Ryan Finnegan 15/03/16 Flyer  Retreat in Daily Life : South Wariwckshire

A retreat, over six weeks, not away from our normal life but in it, taking time to pay attention, reflect and to grow closer to Jesus.

You can choose the time and place of your daily private prayer and negotiate a time and place to have a weekly meeting with your prayer guide. It includes an opening and closing gathering, drawing together the ‘retreat’ as individuals and as a praying community. It starts on 3 April from 6:30pm till 9pm at St Andrews, Shottery.

If you would like to run a retreat in daily life in your parish please visit their website using the link below or for more information please see the attached flyer.
