Still Before Christmas: Let us go to Bethlehem

9th December, 4:00 pm to 12th December, 2:00 pm


Sister Rachel

Join us for this Still Before Christmas Retreat with Sister Rachel Overton as we consider the journeys of those who travelled to Bethlehem on the first Christmas.

During these days we will take time to consider the journeys of some of those whom the Gospels tell us travelled to Bethlehem. Alongside those journeys, we will be reflecting upon our own journey to Bethlehem as we move towards Christmas. The retreat will be largely silent, although the amount of silence over meals is dependent on the retreatants’ wishes on arrival.

Sister Rachel’s background is in medicine. After qualifying she joined a religious community, living there for over twenty years. She still lives under vows, now as a solitary religious and is responsible to the Bishop of Peterborough for maintaining her vows and the life she leads. She has been involved in spiritual direction and leading retreats since 1989 and currently she is the Bishop’s Adviser for Spirituality for the Diocese of Peterborough.

Early bird discount: £315 if booked before 30th September 2019.
