One day retreat, Saturday 18 July

One day retreat, Saturday 18 July

Next Saturday the Dominican friars in Camberwell (Melbourne) are offering a one day retreat. The theme of the retreat is Knowing Jesus.

Fr Dominic Murphy OP, who is prior of the Camberwell community, will share a preached meditation on knowing Jesus through the sacraments. Br James Baxter OP, who was ordained a deacon last Saturday, will lead a meditation on knowing Jesus through the rosary.

The third preacher is a wild card. I’m neither a Dominican friar nor a Dominican tertiary, but I have been invited to share a preached meditation on knowing Jesus through the Scriptures.

In addition to the three preached meditations, participants will pray together at Mass, at Morning Prayer and Evening Prayer of the Church, and there are provisions for Eucharistic adoration, sacramental confessions, and solitude in the grounds at Nazareth House in Camberwell.

The cost is only $40, which includes lunch and refreshments. The day begins at 9am and concludes at 4pm. For more information email stdominicevents@hotmail.com, or call Fiona on 0402 474 074. Book online at trybooking.com. Bookings close on Friday.

    I am sure this will be a great retreat. My prayers are with them. I am leaving for Sri Lanka and India early next week, so I will not be able to attend.
