Love after Love: The Joy of the Christian Journey

  • -
Fr Kevin Hayden OSB
Standard accommodation: £202.50 En-suite accommodation: £217.50

The title of this retreat is inspired by Derek Walcott’s poem of the same name, a poem which goes on to say: “A time will come when with elation you will greet yourself arriving at your own door.”  The Christian journey is one of an ever-deepening discovery of ourselves, our true selves as children of God – that true self we have so often betrayed for another.  When we learn, like the prodigals we all are, to come home again to ourselves, we find with joy that we have always had everything we needed, and so much more than we could have ever imagined.
