Contemplative Weekend Retreat
(Online and Residential)

Please join us in a series of weekend retreats to learn how to connect to God through the art of contemplative seeing, listening and reading.

We invite you all to join us either in person as a weekend resident or as an online participant – united in heart and soul, together for the fresh outpouring on us of the joyful experience of God.

Praying With Saint Paul
(Online Talk)

Since prayer is at the heart of the Christian life, what did Saint Paul teach about prayer? What can we learn from this great lover of Christ about intimacy with God in prayer? Our next online talk on the 2nd October (2:45pm-4:25pm) discusses this exact theme. We hope you’ll join us – Learn More and Register Here.
