Delivered by the Minsteracres team -We welcomed retreatants and friends of Minsteracres last weekend to the theme ‘The God Who Speaks.’ We explored new ways of celebrating, living and sharing God‘s word in our own lives, within our parishes and partnerships.
As with the rest of the country we have been observing lockdown since the beginning of the year and we are looking forward to welcoming people back to the walled garden in larger numbers than we have been able to accommodate due to the restrictions.
Re-Co Co (Recovery College Collective) arrived on the 22nd June and enjoyed the space as well as the activities that had been planned in advance of them arriving by Liz Holmes & volunteers from Outreach group based here at Minsteracres.
We have a glut of courgettes in the Peace Garden. If you’ve ever grown courgettes you will know they all ripen on the same day. You wait all of June and July for courgettes, you crave them, but there are none.
For a great many people becoming a grandparent is one of life’s pleasures.
We are a Christian place of prayer with a resident community of Roman Catholic Passionist priests, nuns and lay people. The presence of the community gives the centre a homely atmosphere and provides a spirit of prayer and hospitality.
