Lent Retreat

Practising Resurrection
Lent 2017 begins on Ash Wednesday, March 1 and concludes on Maundy Thursday, April 13. As we do every year at this time, we invite you to deepen your experience of this holy season by joining us in a spiritual retreat. We’ll be considering resurrection in talks, guided prayers, silence and conversation throughout the weekend. Invest your time in this weekend and you will be changed!
