Event description

Description

ChaplaincyPlus is pleased to work with Manresa Link again this year to invite the Birmingham business community to take part in a six week Ignatian individually guided retreat in daily working life. The retreat is flexible, to fit around the demands of working life. The meetings at ChaplaincyPlus's offices on Monday 18 September at 5.30pm for 6-7pm is the group meeting to begin the retreat - and we also ask everyone to attend a group meeting on Wednesday 8 November, again at 5.30pm for 6-7pm, as our group meeting to end the retreat.

The retreat is open to Christians and to anyone who is searching or curious about God. What does the Retreat in Daily Working Life involve?

Daily private prayer: The heart of the retreat is private individual prayer. You are invited to make a commitment to pray privately, daily, over the six weeks, for whatever period you can manage each day, but we recommend at least 30 minutes a day.

Weekly individual meeting with your prayer guide: Once a week, you will meet with your allocated prayer guide for about 30 minutes, at a time and place in the city centre that works for you, fitting around your work commitments – or even at the home of the individual or the prayer guide, if this works for you both. You will arrange the details together with your prayer guide.

What does the retreat cost? There is no charge as such for the retreat, but we do ask for a donation of £20 towards the expenses of the prayer guides. Donations can be made at the opening meeting or direct to Sarah Thorpe. However, if this is would be a problem for you, please come anyway.

Places are limited – first come, first served. For more information,contact Sarah Thorpe at ChaplaincyPlus, before the end of August, on sarah.thorpe@chaplaincyplus.org.uk or 0121 236 9472 or 0798 224 8949.
