Retreat in the City
Christ Church Cathedral holds regular retreats where attendees get together to discuss topical issues in a spiritual environment. Each retreat is led by an experienced facilitator and includes prayer sessions, time for reflection and social time where you can share ideas with fellow attendees. More information on upcoming retreats will be shared on this page, but please also see our calendar, follow the cathedral on social media, and for queries contact ei.hcruhctsirhc@emoclew.
‘Who will separate us from the love of Christ?’
Having passed St Brigid’s Day, the first day of spring, the retreat gave the opportunity to increase our awareness of the natural change of seasons as a means of focusing our attention and being present with one another and with God. The retreat included lectio divina, as well as other suggested exercises and reflections.
A Good Life, 7-9 February
What constitutes a good life? In our fast paced western society, a good life is measured by how much one produces. We are in danger of becoming human ‘doings’ rather than human beings. Our retreat leader, Ana Mullan, a qualified spiritual director, led the group through a series of reflections aimed at helping us consider our priorities, our use of time and how deeply we engage in the present moment.
