‘Women of the Well’ Day Retreat

Spirituality for women by women
Saturday 19 January 2019

This day is an invitation to stop, just for a day, to stand back from all the busy-ness and journey within… What do we really want from the coming year? What are the questions we are asking ourselves? How do we want to live the relationships that are the most important to us?

The day is an invitation to come to the well, and like the Woman in St John’s Gospel, to find that same gift of ‘living water’ we all need to continue the year well. Led by women members of the Jesuit Centre team, the day will include time for prayer, reflection, ritual and conviviality, time on one’s own and in small groups.

Saturday 19 January from 10am – 4pm
Venue Prayer Centre.
Cost €30.00
(includes lunch in the Knock House Hotel)
To be able to best prepare for the day, please let us know if you plan to come.
