Barmouth 8-Day Individually Guided Retreat
An individually guided retreat offers you the time and opportunity to pay attention to God and to be more aware of God’s work in your life. It also gives the space to pray and to reflect on your life, to consider the decisions you have to make, and the priorities you want to set.
Barmouth, on the mid-Wales coast, is an excellent setting for a silent retreat. The Jesuit house faces the sea and there is a path down to a wonderful beach just 7 minutes away, and hills rise up to over 1000 feet immediately behind the house. There are individual bedrooms and a simple, prayerful chapel for daily mass at 5.30pm with Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament in the evening. Under half a mile away there is a small and beautiful medieval church which is always open: a wonderful place for prayer.
The main meal of each day is in the early evening after mass. Food for sandwiches is put out after breakfast, thus enabling retreatants to be out all day if they wish. This retreat is very suitable for people who find the quiet of the countryside conducive to prayer and who may be discerning how the Lord is calling them in their daily lives.
To benefit from this retreat you will have to be able to climb stairs as there are no ground floor bedrooms.
