Young Adult’s Formation Week

22nd – 29th July, 2024

For anyone aged 18 – 35!  Spend a week living with the Community of Our Lady of Walsingham in prayer, fellowship and formation touching on a wide variety of areas including, but not limited to: the Spirituality of Walsingham, emotional maturity and discernment, life rooted in the rhythm of the word and with the option of periods of one-to-one accompaniment with a sister.  There will also be the opportunity to spend a day in Walsingham and a visit a Carmelite Convent near Norwich which will include a chat with one of the sisters there.  We particularly recommend this formation week to those who are at a bit of a crossroads in their life and looking for some help in discerning their direction but this retreat is open to all who fall into the age bracket and we hope to welcome you in the summer to our convent here in Norfolk!
