    We are a group of women and men from 12 Step programmes, following the teachings of John Main and the World Community for Christian Meditation.  We are not affiliated with any 12 step programmes of recovery.  We are here to share this ancient path of Contemplative Prayer as a way to practise the 11th Step: Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understand God, praying only for knowledge of God's will for us and the power to carry that out.

    God Slipped in "did not our hearts burn within us?"

    Often, like the disciples on the road to Emmaus, we journey through life not fully appreciating how God is with us. This retreat is a reflection of the varieties of religious experience, of the many ways that God can and does come in to our lives in good times and bad.

    Fr Derek Laverty is a religious priest belonging tot he Congregation of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary. The most famous member of the Congregation is Saint Damien of Molokai, the leper priest. Fr. Derek, who was ordained in 1991, is a well-known Retreat Director who has been full time involved in leading days, weekends and preached and directed retreats throughout the UK, Ireland and further afield. He has experience of parish ministry, leadership and working in the third world (Mozambique, Africa).

    This retreat was advertised as being led by  Fr Anthony Fernandes, SFX. Fr Anthony has been asked by his order to take on a new ministry and is very sad not to be able to lead this retreat.

    We are very grateful to Fr Derek Laverty SSCC who has agreed at short notice to lead the retreat, having to reschedule a number of appointments to accommodate us.

    St Therese's Little Way to Holiness

    Although she lived an obscure and short life, St Therese of Lisieux has had an enormous impact on Catholic spirituality, so much so, that she was declared a Doctor of the Church in 1997. This retreat will explore how an understanding of the psycho-spiritual experiences of her childhood had a big effect on her novel and influential spirituality. A number of themes will be examined such as separation anxiety, Jansenistic perfectionism, Justification by faith, The little Way, her understanding of holiness etc.

    Pat Collins C.M., M.A., STL a  Vincentian, has been a teacher, missioner and lecturer. He helped to establish the Alpha course in Ireland, is a founder member of the New Springtime Community in Dublin, and is an international speaker. He has written a number of books such as Guided by God: Ordinary and Charismatic Ways of Discovering God’s Will (2015); Encountering Jesus: New Evangelisation in Practice (2017)  and Prophecy: Truth for Today, Light for Tomorrow (2018).

    This retreat, led by Rev Reuben Preston begins with lunch on Monday 1 October 2018 and ends with lunch on Friday 5 October.

    This retreat is designed to help you draw closer to God and the call of faith upon you as you encounter God through the medium of film and some of the St Ignatius’ Spiritual exercises.

    As the Spiritual exercises say “within us all is a profound and ceaseless yearning for life, love, freedom, joy and a community where we feel always and deeply at home”.

    In this retreat you will have opportunity to encounter God through silence, group conversation, watching films, liturgical prayer and 1-1 spiritual direction: as well as having time for relaxation and refreshment in the context of excellent accommodation and catering.

    During the retreat we shall prepare to watch, watch and reflect upon 5 Films which we will use to explore parts of the Spiritual exercises of St Ignatius with the help of scripture prayer and reflection as well as a goodly bout of enjoyment and laughter.

    This retreat will bring you deeper and more close to God through the media of film as well as traditional prayer and silence.

    Prerequisites: None you will be given materials and explanations to join in with all aspect of the retreat.

    A Retreat Association Quiet Day led by Sr Magdalen Lawler SND

    Beginning with the newly commissioned icon of the Woman at the Well, we will explore the value of gazing with inner eyes at the mysteries enshrined in icons. Using ancient mindfulness practices the icons open up to us ways of understanding Christ and his message for today.

    Magdalen is a Sister of Notre Dame, living in Bermondsey, SE London. She trained at St Beuno’s and was part of the Ignatian retreat team at Loyola Hall and elsewhere. Since her retirement she has worked in retreats and spiritual direction. She has a special interest in women’s spirituality and in the relationship between spirituality and the visual arts. Her interest in icons was part of her degree dissertation.

    Her most recent publications are Christ, Our Morning Star, Love bade me Welcome and Show us the Father all published by Pauline Media UK.

    CATHOLIC SPIRITUALITY NETWORK Pre-Advent Retreat Waiting, Watching and Wonderment

    Praying the Advent mystery through artwork, poetry, and the rhythms of creation

    In this retreat we will use artwork, poetry and the rhythms of creation to explore how God comes afresh into our own waiting, watching and wonderment.

    As the autumn fall moves towards winter’s stillness, the season of Advent shifts our gaze to the final days when so much that seemed important will be swept away. But Advent also bids us look forward to birth, beginning, and the budding of a yet hidden spring. We are taken back to the mother’s womb. Life will be renewed in her child of love.

    Led by Magdalen Lawler and Christopher Chapman

    This retreat is an opportunity for members and the wider Catholic Community to come together to strengthen our links and to reflect and deepen the coming Advent season.
