1st – 3rd March, 2024
Join us on this retreat which will exploring the Scripture and how to make it a central part of your life!
Scripture is one of the greatest gifts that we have, something which is not merely words on the page, but something, “alive and active,” (Hebrews 4:12). This retreat will show you how to live your life rooted in scripture which has the ability to transform our hearts, minds and lives at a deep level. We will explore practical ways of praying with scripture and also making it part of each and every moment of our lives.
Retreatants, both those on Zoom and those joining in person, will join the sisters for their times of prayer with times for input and sharing as well as personal prayer and reflection. There will also be the option of having a time of accompaniment from one of the sisters which will help to deepen your understanding of the material covered on this retreat.
