From 6pm Friday 11th October until 2pm on Sunday 13th October 2019 at Sion Catholic Community for Evangelism, Sawyers Hall Lane, Brentwood, Essex CM15 9BX. Guest Speaker: Canon David Oakley.
Our theme this year is 'Silence & the Scriptures'. We chose this theme in line with the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales who have designated 2020 as ‘The God Who Speaks’: A Year of the Word to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Verbum Domini – Pope Benedict XVI’s Apostolic Exhortation on ‘The Word of the Lord’, and the 1600th anniversary of death of St Jerome, who translated the Bible into Latin. 2020 will be a year of celebrating, living and sharing God’s word. This silent weekend retreat is a great opportunity to take time out with the Lord in prayer and reflection. 40-Hours Adoration, Silence and Prayer form part of the weekend.
