Lent Retreat: 2018
from the ISC:
Follow-up to Lent Retreat: Suggestions
Many people have asked us for suggestions as to how to continue the good work and fruitful prayer of the Lent Retreat when Lent is ended.
We suggest you enjoy Easter and look forward in hope. We would also suggest that it would be good to enter into a less intense prayer period.
Howevever, if you have found the Lent Retreat helpful it would be good to keep up some of the things you have found help you in deepening your relationship to God.
Below we have a few suggestions: We have daily online prayer to pray on your own. A weekly prayer, particularly suited to groups.
We offer residential retreats as well as a day with Edwina Gateley who wrote many of the poems used in our retreat.
We also offer an introductory course to the Spirituality of St Ignatius Loyola (Ignatian);
Growth in Prayer and Reflective Living.
Finally, we suggest a few books and authors you might find helpful.
May God bless you all this Easter Season.
