A number of different people have shared time together on retreat at Ampleforth and discovered friends along the way. There is the beginning of a sort of community of retreat goers. Many people would like to be able to return more regularly and spend time with familiar faces – to strengthen that sense of community, of a journey shared.
To that end we are beginning this year a series of monthly “days” with a very simple structure: coffee – a talk – some space for reflection, conversation or relaxation – a meal together – and some time for sharing and prayer together at the end.
Dates for the diary:
Tuesday 21 January, Tuesday 18 February, Tuesday 21 April, Tuesday 19 May, Tuesday 23 June, Tuesday 21 July, Tuesday 22 September, Tuesday 20 October, Tuesday 17 November, Tuesday 15 December
Whether you are a “seasoned” retreat goer, or someone who simply finds the possibility attractive, do please get in touch with us!
