Hungry for God

A new retreat experience for secondary school students who are engaged with the work of Mary’s Meals.  They offer spiritual nourishment to young people who are so often hungry for God’s love in their lives.  The retreat events are led by Craig Lodge Community with guest speakers from Mary’s Meals including Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow.  They run Tuesdays-Thursdays and include talks, testimonies, prayer, Mass, a Way of the Cross hill climb, praise and worship, a healing and reconciliation service with plenty of fun and fellowship as well.  The content is presented in a way that is accessible and enjoyable no matter where someone is on his or her faith journey.

We can accommodate groups of 30-40, accompanied by their teachers and, where possible, by their chaplain too. This retreat is particularly suitable for third year students.

Cost: The suggested donation is £60 per person. We can accommodate up to 40 people per retreat and the minimum number required for a group is 30.

“Many young people in Scotland humble me with their commitment to feeding the hungry. But many of them are hungry too – hungry for the truth, hungry for meaning. These are retreats for any young person seeking truth and goodness – no matter where they might be on their faith journey. We hope these little retreats might be a way for us to be fed and changed by Our Lord Jesus; that we might meet him in a new way in the little ones we feed, in the scripture we read, in the Eucharist we share – and in each other too as we walk together.”

Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow, Founder of Mary’s Meals
