Retreats

REST, RENEW , REFLECT

A retreat might be just what you need if you answer yes to any of these questions. Do you...

  • long for some quiet "me" time?

  • want to spend a weekend to develop your interests? 

  • wish to know more about prayer? 

  • need some time for reflection away from work or family? 

  • want to deepen your spiritual life? 

 

​Retreats are for everybody - for ordinary people at any time in our lives, giving us the chance to step aside from life for a while, to rest and become refreshed in a nurturing and peaceful environment. The FCJ Centre is a quiet place apart where people from all over the world come to pray, meditate, and find spiritual nurture. We can help you reconnect with yourself, with others, with creation, and with God in a variety of ways.
