Silent Lent Retreat 25-28 February 2021
Booking now open. The retreat starts Thursday 25 February.
We, the ordinary people of the streets, believe with all our might that this street, this world, where God has placed us is our place of holiness. We believe that we lack nothing here that we need…We make our souls into the silent place where the Word of God can dwell and resound (Madeleine Delbrêl)
This year’s retreat will be on zoom and will seek to discover God’s presence in the context of our own homes and lives and neighbourhoods. The retreat will begin with an introduction on the evening of Thursday 25 February allowing for Friday to be a free day of reflection in which we take our retreat into the context of our own day, work and activities- allowing whatever we are doing to be infused by our interior prayer. Then from Friday evening onwards there will be online reflections and time for sharing. The retreat will end on with St Martin-in-the-Field’s Parish Eucharist at which Revd Catherine Duce will be preaching.
The cost of joining the retreat is £15 with free places available for anyone who requests. Please click here to book your place and you will be sent the zoom link and further details in due course.
