Retreats & Courses

  • Word on Fire

    9 Sep 18

    We are delighted to announce that our extended course this year will be Word on Fire by Bishop Robert Barron. Witness the most significant story ever told. For the first time in breath-taking, high- difinition cinematography, the beauty and truth of the Catholic Faith is illustrated in a rich multimedia experience.

  • Mother Teresa - Prophet or Plaster Saint?

    23 Feb 19

    This retreat will go behind the stereotypical images of Mother Teresa and present the life and legacy of the real woman rather than the ‘plaster saint’. It will explore issues like: Who is the real Mother Teresa? What are her main messages? How do these apply to us today? To what extent can she help us on the path to the creation of a just society?
