    Preached Retreat led by Fr Paul Rout OFM

    The Kairos Centre
    “Be transformed by a spiritual revolution so that you can put on your new self” (Ephesians 4.23):
    Spiritual transformation through the gifts of the Spirit.

    This retreat will lead us on a journey in which we shall contemplate the transforming power that is granted us when we open our hearts to accept the gifts given to us by the Holy Spirit.  Our guides for this journey will be the great 13th Century Franciscan spiritual writer St Bonaventure and our present Pope, Pope Francis.  The retreat will focus upon each of the seven gifts of the Spirit, exploring their foundations in the Scriptures and their practical applications as found in the reflections of our two spiritual guides.

    Fr Paul Rout OFM is a priest of the Australasian Province of the Franciscan Order of Friars Minor.  He has a teaching background in Franciscan Spirituality and Philosophy of Religion at Heythrop College, University of London, at the Yarra Theological Union, Melbourne, Australia and in Adult Faith Formation programmes in the Westminster Diocese.  He is also engaged in pastoral parish ministry in the Catholic parish of Heston in London, and gives Retreats and Days of Prayer to Religious and Parish groups in various parts of the country.
