Do you love spending time outdoors and would like to find a way to connect this with your faith? Perhaps you have not been on a retreat before, but are looking for a different way to reflect on your life. This online weekend retreat via Zoom will allow you to do just that.

This retreat is for those who feel most alive in the great outdoors. Whether you love to walk, run, cycle, go wild swimming or an activity of your choice, this retreat is for you. The Truly Great Outdoors retreat will explore how exercising in the natural world can be a spiritual exercise for many and bring us closer to the Creator of all. In accordance with Covid restrictions, how do you make the most of the outdoors in your local area?

We will welcome you into the retreat with a session via Zoom on Friday evening 7-8.15pm. There will be the opportunity to meet others who are passionate about their chosen activity, be guided in a prayerful reflection on the week that has passed, and we will then offer suggestions for the next day when you are enjoying your time outdoors whatever the weather!

On the Saturday evening 7-8.15pm we will prayerfully reflect on the day we have had, share this with others in small groups and suggestions for Sunday will be offered.

We will close on Sunday evening 6-7pm with a final reflection and sharing to celebrate the weekend's activities and the beauty of the natural world.

Places will be limited and you are asked to commit to all three meetings over the weekend if possible so that the group can journey together online, but the way you spend your time for the rest of the weekend is up to you. Donations will be welcome to the work of Jesuit Spirituality. To join this event, please email [email protected]
