Invitation to an annual retreat. By offering an ‘annual retreat’, we are inviting parents to set aside at least one day in their year to do something substantial to nourish their own spiritual journey. Time apart from the pressures of the daily routine, being led in a prayer exercise, allowing space to listen to the Spirit’s movement in our lives… a day like this is a helpful way of re-setting our spiritual compass and sends a powerful message to our children.
Retreats are offered by the CSO. However parents may wish to take up a retreat option offered independently by a retreat house or a renewal movement. The CSO recognises the wide range of spiritualties in any one Diocese, and encourages parents to explore the offerings of the wider Church.
