22nd – 29th July, 2024

Open to those aged 18 – 35!  Spend a week living with the Community of Our Lady of Walsingham in prayer, fellowship and formation.

We will explore a wide variety of areas including, but not limited to: the Spirituality of Walsingham, emotional maturity and discernment, life rooted in scripture and more.  There will also be the opportunity to spend time in Walsingham and also for one-to-one accompaniment with a sister in community. Retreatants will be able to join in with our pray, community and work life as well as receiving formation from experienced retreat-givers.

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!
