We invite bookings from individual retreat guests. You will stay in our retreat house, St Bruno's where we offer a warm welcome, comfortable accommodation and good food. All are welcome, whether you have been on retreat many times or are taking your first tentative steps on your faith journey. Our ministry is especially focused on providing the space and time for guests to retreat in a welcoming and calm place where they can step away from everyday life, explore their spirituality and join with the monastic community in the daily rhythm of prayer and liturgy. You can either choose to book one of the several dates set aside in the retreat programme - Time Out: Individual self-led retreats - or contact us to see if we can accommodate your preferred dates. This may mean that you are sharing the retreat house with others, either an external group or programmed retreat.
“All guests who present themselves are to be welcomed as Christ, for he himself will say: I was a stranger and you welcomed me (Matt 25:35)" Rule of St Benedict, Chapter 53:1Booking form
