Led by Fr Tim Redmond – 202 has been designated the Year of God Who Speaks for the Dioceses of England and Wales, and we are encouraged to celebrate, live and share God’s word with renewed enthusiasm. Mark was the first to write a Gospel and we will use his text to listen attentively to how God speaks to us today. Participants may like to read through the entire text of this short gospel once or twice to prepare for the retreat. Reading it whole may yield new understanding. Fr Tim is a member of St Patrick’s Missionary Society and taught Scripture for may years in Kenya. He has led retreats in UK, Ireland and Kenya.
