Who will come?

Healthcare professionals are dealing every day with matters of life and death.

Yet they are usually so busy, with patients and with paperwork, that they have no time to reflect in peace on why they do their work, on how it relates to their own spiritual lives and to those of their patients.

Their lack of time gives them no time to think about their time.

Our week aims to provide a restful, restorative and encouraging space in which you will be able to do just that.

The week will include talks and discussion, the opportunity for shared prayer, time for leisure activities, and plenty of space to relax, think and chat in beautiful and peaceful surroundings.

It is aimed at doctors, nurses, chaplains and allied health professionals, who are Christians of any persuasion.Concentration

  • Catholic Teaching on Dignity
