Contemplative Christianity Event

 

The Event includes:

-a retreat based on the Christian meditation practices as passed on through the teaching of the Benedictine monk Fr John Main.

-John Main had his spiritual roots in the tradition of the Desert Fathers & Mothers, so there  will also be a short storytelling / theatre performance based on this desert spirituality  and set in a modern, contemporary setting.

 


At St Bernadette's RC Church, Lancaster

on Nov 22nd, 7pm-9.30pm.

 

There is no charge for this event as it is funded by The Christian Meditation Trust (UK). 

There are limited places, so booking is essential.
