Y11 Retreat to Thickett Priory
On Monday 19th December saw a group of our Year 11 pupils join the Carmelite Nuns of Thicket Priory for a day of retreat and spiritual reflection. The theme of the retreat was ‘Journey and Vocation’. The pupils received a warm welcome from the Sisters followed by a Question and Answer Session to find out more about the life of an enclosed Nun.
Fr David lead the group and the Nuns in Mass and pupils were then able to spend time in the beautiful surroundings of the monastery. The afternoon included workshops on spiritual exercises followed by afternoon prayer with the Nuns before saying our ‘goodbyes’. Thanks again to Mother Prioress and all the nuns for their hospitality and kindness. A great day was had by all – Thanks be to God!
