    CARM Retreat: Poetry and Prayer: Friday 1 June to Sunday 3 June 2018

    4pm arrivalHolland House

    This retreat will be led by Revd Clive Harper and Ann Parker.

    'Some blessed Hope’

    ‘We stand on the shoulders of giants’; in our time together at this weekend retreat we shall attempt to stand on the shoulders of Thomas Hardy; not the sometimes gloomy talented story teller but the inspired poet. From our vantage point we shall try to see with his eyes the things he saw and find ‘some blessed hope’ to cheer us on our way.

    ‘We follow in the footsteps of them that have gone before’; to this end, as we discern the direction of Thomas Hardy we shall also recall the leadership of Diana Walls over the years and give thanks for all she has given us and trust that the ‘blessed hope’ which she had is now a reality for her.

    Do take the time to read some Hardy poetry; and if you wish, do contact either of us in advance of the retreat. You can do this through Holland House. We look forward to joining with fellow pilgrims on 1st to 3rd June. 

    The cost is £190 per person which includes accommodation and meals.
