the wellbeing retreat

Jun 1, 2019

Two weeks ago Bishop Paul Martin opened and dedicated the new parish church of St Patrick in Lincoln. In his homily at the Mass (online at this link)  the bishop encouraged the people to use their “new church for precisely what it is for, not as one more secular town venue among many, but as a sacred place, a prime place of encounter with Jesus Christ”.

Next Saturday 9 June I will lead a brief retreat day at the Lincoln church. In the four hours I will offer a couple of reflections and some encouragement for personal prayer. There will be time some minutes of solitude and time for a stroll and to look around the new church.

If you have never been to a retreat before I am sure you will find these hours a helpful respite and encouragement in the midst of your busy life. If you are a regular at retreats then you will know just how helpful a few focussed hours can be.

Please share this invitation with anyone you think might be interested. Bring a friend, or organise a group.

I look forward to being with you.
In Christ
John
