Proclaiming the mercy of God: CAFOD retreats
22 October 2016, 10:00am ‐ 3 December 2016 04:00pm
Retreats are taking place all over the country. For more information or to sign up online, visit our CAFOD retreat Eventbrite.
As this Year of Mercy draws to a close, CAFOD will be hosting retreats around the country that will explore how each of us can continue to live out Pope Francis’ call to be “witnesses of mercy” in our families, communities and in our world.
These retreats are an opportunity to be refreshed and sustained. It will allow you to take time out from everyday life to reflect on your own faith journey, in the company of other CAFOD supporters and in peaceful surroundings.
During the day, we will explore the Scriptures and Church teaching together. We will also take time to learn from each other’s experiences and to be inspired and enriched by stories from CAFOD’s campaigning and work overseas.
These retreats are free of charge. All are welcome, whether or not you are already involved with CAFOD’s campaigns.
