This largely silent retreat offers an opportunity to reflect prayerfully on our journey to celebrate the Incarnation. During morning meditations on powerful and beautiful art, we will explore the ancient ‘O’ antiphons, used throughout the Christian world at Advent. Afternoon workshops will give us an opportunity to use simple art materials to express our own creative responses. You do not need to have any prior experience of making art to participate fully in this silent retreat.
