desert mothersThe theme of the Women's retreat this year is 'Exploring the spirituality of the Desert Mothers'.

Come and join us for a peaceful weekend in the beautiful surroundings of the Abbaye d’ Echourgnac. Together we will share in fellowship and setting time aside for renewal & restoration. We will hear stories and insights from the Desert Mothers; remarkable spiritual women known as “ammas”, who chose to live in the wilderness in the 4th and 5th centuries, devoting themselves to lives of prayer and contemplation. As we journey with the Desert Mothers & each other, we will explore different ways to enrich our everyday lives.

Friday October 18th - Sunday October 20th, 2019.

The retreat will be led by: Rev’d Canon Elaine Labourel, Amanda Allchorn and Rev’d Charlotte Sullivan. The cost of the retreat is 140€ per person for a single occupancy en-suite room.
