HOW IT WORKS
We meet as a group for an Opening Session in the Ignatian Spirituality Centre on Monday 20 February 2017 at 7pm for the Lent Retreat and on Thursday 27 April 14th 2017 at 7pm for the Easter Retreat . Afternoon sessions are possible - please state your preference on the booking form.
For the following weeks we invite you to commit yourself to a period of personal prayer each day. This will be talked through and agreed between yourself and your prayer companion.
Each person will have a prayer companion, available in the Ignatian Spirituality Centre on the following seven Mondays (or Thursdays) during the retreat at times agreed between yourselves.
The role of the prayer companion is to listen to and reflect with the person making the retreat. Help will be given on the focus and prayer material for the following week.
On the last Monday of the lent retreat (3 April 2017) and the last Thursday of the Easter retreat (8 June 2017) we meet together in the Ignatian Spirituality Centre as a group at at 7 pm for the Closing Session.
Throughout the retreat, the ISC Chapel is available for prayer.
