Thanks so much for our day of reflection. A great way to start the year for me. It made me realise that our spiritual life needs the help of a structure or framework to enrich our relationship with God. It poses a challenge!’ ‘Thank you for such a wonderful day.’

New encounter retreat dates.

Friday November 10, 2017 at St. Cuthbert’s Oratory, Southampton.

The Jesus Prayer: A practical approach to contemplative prayer. The Jesus prayer is simply the prayer offered by the publican as he stood before the altar of God, ‘God, have mercy upon me a sinner’. Jesus commended his humility and faith. What might we learn that will empower our own prayer life? 

For centuries disciples have discovered the way their spiritual development has been empowered through a greater understanding and positive practice of the Jesus prayer. This retreat looks briefly at its long history across the church, it’s power to transform our personal prayer life and the power that is contained within the use of the holy name of Jesus.

This retreat offers practical approaches to discovering more of contemplative prayer.

Price: £49 inclusive of snacks, lunch and all materials.

The person and work of the Holy Spirit. Much has been said of the Holy Spirit. Yet for many the dynamic presence of the third Person of the Trinity is more memory than reality.

This retreat identifies the person of the Holy Spirit and explores the work of the Spirit in three important spheres; the life of the disciple, the life of the church and the life of the wider community.

This retreat looks at how the Spirit interacts in our daily lives and considers an interventionist God.

Price: £49 inclusive of snacks, lunch and all materials.

It will also point us towards the hope which the promise of resurrection brings to the desert.
