Even the Sparrow – A pilgrim’s guide to prayer, trust and following the Leader. A Lent Retreat.

20–24 February 2023 (Mon–Fri)

Life’s journey is sometimes monotonous, at other times perilous, and occasionally wondrous. When I feel lost and disoriented, how might I get my bearings? When I feel disconnected from God, how might I set my heart on pilgrimage? When I feel depleted, how might God supply me en-route and strengthen me along the way? Let’s journey together to find some answers. 

Who's speaking?
