Prayer Novena to Our Lady of Mount Carmel
Start Date: 7th July – 15th July
This is a 9 day retreat starting on the 7th July to prepare for the Our Lady of Mount Carmel Feast on 16th July 2020.
We are inspired by the life of Mary the Mother of Jesus and the model of true discipleship. She always leads us to her son in whom we find the fullness of life. “Do whatever he tells you” (John 2:5) she instructs us just as she did during the wedding feast at Cana. Following this advice resulted in the miracle of abundant wine and the avoidance of embarrassment for the newlywed.
Carmelites have always known that no one who turns to Mary will ever be disappointed.
An Individual Guided Retreat
Sometimes we need time away from our busy schedules to pray and reflect. We are offering the opportunity to organise your own online personalised retreat, on dates and times that suit you.
We are offering 30 – 60 minutes of online spiritual direction a day, over four, five, six or seven days. One of our team of qualified and experienced Spiritual Directors will meet with you by phone Skype or Zoom.
This is an on-going service that we offer. The cost ranges from £120 for 4 days to £210 for a 7 day guided retreat.
We organise a number of retreats online, which can be done in your own time and in your own space. Often the retreat includes, if you wish it, individual spiritual direction for 25 minutes each day, by Skype or Zoom, limited to a certain number of participants. During these retreats we record a daily talk and meditation which you can watch live or you can watch the recording later in the day. We send out daily sheets with reflections, scripture, prayers and questions on which to ponder. We prepare these carefully in advance, praying as we do so.
We usually run these online retreats during Lent, Easter, Pentecost, Advent and Christmas.
These retreats are suitable for a range of people, at varying stages of their faith journey, and we encourage those who haven’t been on an online retreat before to come and try it

We can design an online retreat for a parish, a group or a diocese. Please let us know with your requirements and we can discuss creating a retreat, of any length, suitable for your participants.
