Individually Guided Silent Retreat

5–9 February 2024 (Mon–Fri)

This individually Guided Retreat provides a wonderful opportunity to spend time alone and face-to-face with God. On each day of this SILENT IGR there will be a Holy Communion service in the Chapel and a short reflective talk, plus a one to one meeting with your allocated Spiritual Director for up to an hour. The rest of the day is yours to enjoy in silence with God, walk, pray, eat, be…..’ Please note that retreatants will be invited to be in silence from Monday evening until Thursday afternoon.
