24hr Silent Retreats 2020
Friday 7pm – Saturday 7pm
20 – 21 March 5 – 6 June 31 July – 1 August 9 – 10 October
Over the last few years these have become a popular option for those who want to step-aside from their normal everyday life to enjoy a quiet reflective space and explore their relationship with God. During the course of the 24hr retreat staff will introduce material for reflection, beginning with an evening session at 7pm Friday. Silence is maintained over the retreat until a final meal together at 6pm Saturday.
The Emmaus Walk
Remembering what happened in Jerusalem
(A Way of the Cross)
Created on the grounds of St. Francis Retreat Centre, Auckland, are the Stations of the Cross following the theme of the Emmaus Incident (Luke 24: 13-35). Instead of the traditional lineal journey, this journey spirals inward and then outward from the centre (where Jesus the stranger is met, walked with, and recognised). Though the inspiration is based Post-Resurrection and Post-Easter it is also Lenten — the change of hearts, the opening of eyes, the burning of hearts, and more aptly the remembrance of what happened in Jerusalem at the death of Jesus.
We invite you to join us every Saturday morning (10.00 am) from the beginning of Lent to Holy Week. Please feel free to make use of this sacred space at any time, either as an individual or as a group. Limited written material is available from the Centre, please call and ask.
5pm Sunday – 9am Friday
