This is an on-line retreat lasting 7 days (Dec 8,9,10, 15,16,17,18) but carried out in your own time within a loose framework. It’s not necessary to come to every day, just pick the days you can come.
Run via Zoom this retreat is designed to fit into peoples busy and now even more complex lives – allowing us to make the most of having to live more solitary lives and yet being together to contemplate the wonder of Christmas.
This is Holland House’s gift to all those who’d normally come here during the Christmas season, and all who are suffering separation or loneliness due to the Covid pandemic. Do join us for this very special retreat.
Here are the days and the stations:
Dec 8: Zecharia & The Annunciation. Dec 9: The Visitation & The Birth of The Baptist Dec 10:Josephs Dream & The Nativity Dec 15: Shepherds and Angels & Adoration of the Shepherds Dec 16th: Naming of Jesus & Visit of the Magi Dec 17th: Presentation of Christ & Flight into Egypt Dec 18th: Massacre of the Innocents & The Return to Nazareth.
Each day we will look at 2 Stations of Advent (Pictures), one in the morning and one in the afternoon, such that over 7 days we will have journeyed through all 14 stations.
The retreat is just £10 per day – when you purchase the item just change the “quantity” in your “basket” to reflect how many days you’d like to purchase. Or you can offer more than £10 in the same way, even if you only come to (say) one day. You will receive the Zoom link (which will valid for all the days) once your purchase has been verified.
