come & pray

Jesus said to them, 'come away with me. Let us go alone to a quiet place and rest for a while’ [Mark 6:31]
We invite ‘pilgrims’ to come and share our times of prayer: the Rosary, Divine Office, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, Praise and Worship and the Way of the Cross. You can either 'make your own retreat,' or you can join us for a retreat event.

I had a huge experience with the Holy Spirit and encountered the saving touch of Jesus. This just showed me how much God wanted to meet me, yet He was not imposing or controlling.

Still enjoying the good fruits of the Unbound Retreat! Powerful. Such lightness and I’m much easier to live with. Haven’t laughed or enjoyed every day as much since….? I don’t remember. Praise God.

I wasn’t sure if my children would want to come back now they are older but my daughter said it was the only place she felt free to live her faith. So we had to come back!

You allowed me a place to begin to heal, learn, reconnect and grow and I’ll be forever thankful.

Truly jaw dropping experience. There are not enough positive words in the dictionary to describe the sheer power of God’s Love that I think was felt by all at the festival.
