Every place is hallowed ground - Led by Ven Jonathan Smith
Thu 11 Oct 09:30 - 16:00
The Diocesan House of Retreat
“Every place is hallowed ground” is a line written by the Olney Poet William Cowper and in this Quiet Day Jonathan will seek to use verse from Cowper and others to celebrate how, in Gerard Manley Hopkins words “the world is charged with the grandeur of God”. There will be an opportunity for prayer and Eucharist.

Ven Jonathan Smith serves as Archdeacon of St Albans. He was first introduced to Pleshey at a Parish Weekend for Waltham Abbey where he was Assistant Curate in the early 1980’s and subsequently has visited the House of Retreat for Quiet Days and Retreats over forty times. He describes it as “one of those thin places where the veil between earth and heaven is most transparent.”

Christmas for grown-ups - Advent Retreat led by Magdalen Houlihan
Fri 23 Nov 18:00 - Sun 25 Nov 14:00
The Diocesan House of Retreat
What brings us to the crib? Is it a calling to come to a deeper faith?
Faith in a God who is reaching out to save us? Wonder at the total disclosure of our God?
Are we prepared to be in covenant with a God who keeps his promises?
Over this weekend we will wait upon and listen to the Spirit who is inviting us into a deeper relationship with the person of Jesus.

Magdalen Houlihan retired from teaching and is engaged in promoting silent prayer and supporting those entering into the regular daily practice of this prayer of quiet. “Some of us seem to stumble upon Silent Prayer. We are not aware that we are looking for prayer. Perhaps we do not know what we are looking for; we only know that there is a yearning within that is not being satisfied. Having come upon the place in which the hidden treasure is, I am committed to guiding others to this place.”
