The Advent Retreat: Silenced by Joy

This years Advent Retreat will be led by Bishop John Ford, formerly Bishop of The Murray. Australia, and Bishop of Plymouth.

Bishop John will base his five addresses on the verses of the Christmas Hymn, ‘The great God of heaven is come down to earth’. He will link the importance of doctrinal belief in the revelation and prayer, explaining how both feed each other and are essential in the lives of disciples. Right belief, right praying, right living etc.

The Retreat will be silent from after supper on Friday evening to after Mass at 11am on Sunday.

There will be opportunities for retreatants to speak in confidence with Bishop John about any aspect of their spiritual life and priests will be available to hear confessions.
