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!

For further information email: office@walsinghamcommunity.org or what’s app us / call on 07733 385788.


We ask for a donation of £180 – £280 for the whole week which includes all your meals, formation material and accompaniment  throughout the week. Places are limited on this retreat and only available on a first-come, first-serve basis so book early to avoid disappointment! Please note that we do not wish money to be an obstacle so get in touch if you have any concerns about this and we would be happy to help.



Dereham has good public transport links with Norwich and buses are also available from Kings Lynn.  Do get in touch to discuss arrival and departure times before booking any train tickets.
