    What is it? A retreat in which each person prays on a short Scripture passage each day to see how it relates to his or her actual life. You then meet a guide once a week to chat about the experience. These meetings are completely confidential and non-judgmental. No knowledge of the Scriptures is needed. Nor do you have to be `holy’!


    Places: There are only 12 places available, on a first come, first served basis. All meetings will take place at: Mount St Catherine’s Primary School, Windmill Av, Armagh BT60 4BR


    There will be an open information session on Tuesday 21 February from 7.30 to 9.00

    This meeting will give people a chance to learn more about the process and to meet the guides. If there are still places left people will be able to sign up.



    The first session of the retreat will be on Sunday 26 Feb 17 from 6.00 to 7.30, and for the following six Tuesdays: 28 Feb, 7, 14, 21, 28 March and 4 April between 7.00 and 9.00.


    Who is the retreat for? Anyone seeking something special in their lives who wants to deepen his or her relationship with God. It is important that you attend all sessions


    Who will be the guides? Lay Volunteers from Down and Connor Prayer Guides. All have done a guided retreat themselves, found that it changed their lives, and have been trained in how to offer it to others.
