Journey into Silence
16th - 17th June 2021
10:00am first day - 4:30pm last day
I look behind me and you're there, then up ahead and you're there too - your reassuring presence, coming and going. - Psalm 139: 4-5
Most people have an unsatisfied yearning for tranquility and peace. By taking part in a silent retreat, you will give yourself the opportunity to draw back from the normal business of living, reflect on your walk in life and open yourself to God.
This retreat will introduce ways of stilling yourself and prayer material. All ways of praying are a means to developing your relationship with God. Hopefully you will find and deepen one or more that support your inner journey. You will be able to avail yourself of a retreat guide who may see you each day and help as a sounding board for you to listen for God’s presence in the circumstances of your life. There will be a chance to share some of your experience at the end of your retreat if you so wish but otherwise participants are in silence. There may be other guests around who are not in silence, but you will have support to stay in silence yourself.
Remember that it is always possible for you to come on a journey into silence at other times than the programmed ones. Just phone up Muriel and book a retreat when a pastoral team member is available to accompany you.
