Called by Name Young Adults Retreat

Called By Name
Young Adults Retreat (18-35)
25th – 27th October 2013 @ Worth Abbey, Benedictine Monastery
Every human person has a unique vocation. God is calling you by name!

The Called By Name retreat offers an opportunity for you to tune-in more deeply to the call of Christ in your life, to discern His will for you, discover deeper meaning and direction in your life, and to grow in the trust and freedom to respond generously to the Gospel.
The weekend will include talks from a range of speakers from different walks of life, spiritual accompaniment, and space for prayer and reflection. The programme will follow the monastic rhythm of prayer, participating in the liturgy of the Benedictine monastic community at Worth. Participants will be able to benefit from the sanctuary of Worth Abbey: it's Church and beautiful grounds, and the atmosphere of peace and prayer.

The retreat is not aimed only at those discerning a possible call to religious life/priesthood, but to every young person seeking to know and live the call of Christ. Together we will explore the personal vocation (who you are!), the work/mission/task of your vocation (what you do!), different states of life (marriage, religious life, priesthood, etc), as well as tools for discernment (how to hear and respond to Christ’s call).

Talks – Prayer/Reflection – The Divine Office & Mass – Spiritual Direction

Our speakers include the Missionaries of Charity, Br Nick Crowe OP – Dominican student brother from Oxford, Sr Cathy Jones – Assumption Sister working for the National Office of Vocation, and Phil Carroll – Seminarian at Wonersh.

Cost: £65 for students/the unwaged, and £95 for the waged. (Subsidies are available so please let us know if cost is a barrier for you; we do not want cost to prevent anyone from attending!)
