Day of Relection at St Cuthman's for Breaved of Thames Ditton

Our Lady of Lourdes parish, Thames Ditton, held a day, open to all parishioners who had been bereaved in recent years, at the Diocesan Retreat Centre, St. Cuthman’s, Coolham for a day.

On June 23, fifteen parishioners joined Fr. Rob Esdaile for a day's prayer and reflection, exploring the issues of loss, remembering their loved ones, and hope amidst bereavement.

Fr. Rob said: “The beautiful setting of the House, Chapel and grounds at St. Cuthman’s was ideal for helping people to explore their loss and seek hope amidst the sadness of their bereavement. One of the important features of our Catholic faith is both that we honour the dead, commending them to God’s mercy in our prayer, and that we try to walk alongside those who grieve.”

St Cuthman's currently has an August Bank Holiday Weekend Offer: Stay for the weekend (the nights of Friday 27th, Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th) and get the Sunday night for £36.50 pppn - half the normal rate. For more information and to book click on one of the links above.
