A Prayerful and Profound Start for the NNIBS Retreat Programme for 2021
On the weekend of February 26-28, New Norcia hosted its first retreat for the year. Led by Fr. David Barry, the weekend offered an intensive opportunity to re-focus and renew the spiritual life of seeking for God, through the traditional Lenten disciplines of fasting, prayer and almsgiving. These themes were addressed particularly from a Benedictine perspective. The retreat was well supported, with about a dozen participants, many of whom remarked that it was an extremely enriching and prayerful experience.
