Retreat for Grandmothers | Tuesday-Thursday, October 24-26
Take time out to look at your life with God and to see how, with God’s help, you can continue to have a positive influence on this rapidly changing world now that you are older and/or a grandparent.
Pope Francis says: "Older people rich in wisdom and humour do so much good for the young! Our consistency can open up a beautiful path of life for younger people ..." Take time out to be with God and see your life from this perspective. Reflect on how you can have deeper and richer relationships and can be a light to help others discover the true meaning of life.
The retreat starts on Tuesday at 3pm with coffee on arrival and finishes on Thursday at 3pm.
Each day there will be Mass, sessions of guided prayer called meditations given by the priest and talks by lay people. You will also have the opportunity for Eucharistic adoration and to go to confession and avail of spiritual direction. You can choose to attend all or only some of the activities on offer.
The atmosphere of personal prayer and recollection in the retreat helps you to get to know God better, to grasp the meaning and purpose of your life and respond with more enthusiasm to life's challenges.
