Friends of Ampleforth Hospitality - An opportunity to share the journey

  • -
Fr Kevin Hayden OSB

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.

Whether you are a “seasoned” retreat goer, or someone who simply finds the possibility attractive, do please get in touch with us!

Future dates for the diary:

Tues 23 June

Tues 21 July

Tues 22 September

Tues 20 October
