For those who seek a day retreat. ‘Time Out Days’ are divided into 3 parts beginning with a opening session at 9.30am, followed by midday prayer at noon and then a final session at 2pm. Between sessions everyone is invited to prayerfully reflect on the material presented by one of our retreat staff.
