Ignatian Retreat Days

NO NEED TO BOOK. JUST COME ALONG (with a packed lunch!)

Second Saturday of each month (except August) from 11am-4pm.

Days to pause a while from the business of life to listen, reflect, pray, review and share.

Comments from recent participants:

“The day was a wonderful way to re-centre my prayer life amid the busy nature of life.”

“This was my first experience at Mount Street, so I was a bit apprehensive coming to a new place and meeting complete strangers and sharing reflections, but the friendliness of the centre and expertise and the facilitators made it an experience where I felt safe and help throughout the day."

“A wonderful way to take time out, gain strength and restore FAITH and LOVE.”

"The day gave me the space to reconnect with God."

"A wonderful opportunity in the midst of urban life to withdraw a little, breath, listen and pray."

"A perfect way to reconnect my awareness of God."
