    Richard Rohr Retreat: April 23 - 26th 2021

    4:00 pm

    Due to the enhanced Tier system now in place, and concerns about January restrictions becoming tighter,  we’ve moved to a new date at the end of April, hopefully things will be more settled.  The good news is, that means a few more places are available!

    For many years Holland House has hosted a residential retreat based on the books and spirituality of Fr Richard Rohr.

    Always popular, this year despite Covid we’re holding our 2020 retreat as planned but working within the safety guidelines set out by Government.

    The Warden (Revd Ian Spencer) will be hosting the retreat along with his colleague Urs Mattmann and will include talks, discussion, meditation, worship and free time.

    Using Rohrs book “Hope against Darkness: The transforming vision of St Francis in an Age of Anxiety”, and his latest book “The Wisdom Pattern”, we’ll be exploring  what Rohr see’s as the most pressing issue of our age, a  “crises of meaning … so many people have lost heart today feeling both confused and powerless – many have lost any over-arching meaning [to life]”.  Rohr turns to the life and vision of St Francis in order to articulate the problem, and then catch the vision (and practical application) of St Francis’s spirituality in order to redeem it (e.g. the pattern of “order – disorder – reorder”)

    If you’re looking at the world and feeling powerless to help heal it, or just feel hopeless – this retreat will put a spring in your step once again.

    Arrival from 4pm onwards,  retreat concludes at 11.00am Monday
