Home Retreat: 'The Contemplative Call to Nature' by Fr Christopher

Signs along grassy walks on the Ampleforth Estate

On 1st November, apart from being All Saints Day, COP26 begins. We may feel overwhelmed by climate change and all the systems apparently at their tipping points. Yet we can pray and we can be grounded, not only on this earth, our home, but in God, Creator of all that is, and our final destiny.

Join Fr Christopher Gorst OSB as he brings us this Home Retreat on YouTube at 11am Saturday 30th October to watch live, or on playback at a time that suits you.

Or if you'd like to download the text and resources to enjoy at your leisure, please visit the Downloads section below.


Each Home Retreat consists of a 10-15 minute reflection, and concludes with a series of suggestions for activities and further reflection throughout the day. We also invite you to join us at 8:15pm to pray Compline together.
