God’s Grandeur: A Retreat with Gerard Manley Hopkins
This retreat will be based on the poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins and scripture texts as an aid to personal prayer. We hope to open a conversation between the retreatant and God. It will follow the pathway of the Ignatian Spiritual Exercises, and will include a number of presentations on the structure and movement of the Exercises, with special attention to key meditations and contemplations. No previous knowledge of Hopkins is required. The retreat will be made in silence as an aid to prayer and reflection. The retreat begins at 6.30pm, (bedrooms are available from 4pm). Please try to arrive between 4pm and 5pm to have time to settle in. The retreat finishes after breakfast on the last day.
