Parish Retreat to Douai Abbey

“Be still and know that I am God” Psalm 46.10

Amidst the rush and busyness of everyday life, it can be very hard to slow down and be still. But even Jesus knew the importance of getting away from the crowds, spending time in stillness and prayer, to be refreshed.

This weekend, we are holding our parish retreat at Douai Abbey in Berkshire, from Friday 20th to Sunday 22nd. This is an opportunity to spend time in a living Benedictine monastery, joining in with the life of prayer and worship, alongside guided spiritual reflections, good food, and set within beautiful surrounding countryside. We would like to keep those who have gone in our prayers this weekend and wish them a great time!
