For the diary

Here are next years dates for the two Alton Abbey retreats I will be running. There is one in the summer running from 16th to 19th July. The Autumn one is planned for 22nd to 25th October. We have just returned from this Autumns retreat which was attended by 8 trainees including myself. Due to travel arrangements I experimented with a stipped back version in terms of altar and accessories. This worked very well and showed how little one needed to still have a good retreat.

As a reminder the Brownshill monastery retreat runs from April 2nd to the 5th next year. This is the one we share with Telford Priory and Rev. Master Saido.
