I have offered to publicise this forthcoming event, which looks to offer some very good spiritual fare:
Young Catholic Adults Weekend Retreat and Spiritual Conference
Douai Abbey, near Reading
Friday 19 - Sunday 21 September 2014
True Conversion of the Soul
We undertake to convert our hearts to the horizons of grace - Pope Benedict XVI.
The annual weekend retreat and spiritual conference returns to Douai Abbey this year, in collaboration with the Schola Gregoriana of Cambridge, the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter, and the Order of Friars Preacher, the Dominicans, as well as an Eastern Rite Catholic chaplain.
This year the organisers are pleased to welcome for the first time the renowned John Pridmore who will be speaking about his experiences as a former gangster and his story of conversion to the life of grace, as recounted in his book From Gangland to Promised Land. This is a great opportunity for those attending to hear him. Having myself heard John Pridmore speak here in OxfordI would heartily agree - he is an impressive figure.
Also in store:
High Mass in the Roman Rite
Compline in the Dominican Rite
Talks and Sermons
Rosary with Dominican Blessing
High Mass in the Dominican Rite
Vespers in the Dominican Rite
Eastern Rite ‘Requiem’ (Litiya)
Scapulars of Mount Carmel
