Advent: Retreat Days hosted by Hyning Monastery

Advent Retreat day on Zoom

Hyning Monastery is offering 2 retreat days via Zoom. Thursday 3rd December and Saturday 12th December 2020. The overall theme will be Hope, much needed at this time! Each day starts at 10:15am concluding with Vespers at 4:30pm.

The timetable is the same for both days.
10.15: Welcome and short prayer – S Elizabeth Mary
10.30 – 11am: S Michaela will give a talk on the Scriptural aspects of hope. This will be followed by 10 minutes for comments or questions.
11.10 am Break
11.30 – 12 pm: S M Stella will present “Our Lady of the Sign”. Again there will be a few moments for comments and questions.
12.15pm Midday Office, live streamed from the chapel
The sisters doing the presentations in the morning will also leave you some questions to think about. These questions will be taken up in an informal and optional discussion from 2.15- 3 pm.
3.15 – 4pm: S Josephine Mary will give a talk on Hope in the monastic tradition, and she will leave you with some thoughts to take away with you at the end of the day.
At 4.30 pm each day, the sisters pray silently in chapel for all those affected by the Covid crisis. Those who wish are invited to join us for that time, which will be followed by Vespers, both live streamed from Chapel, closing our day together.

We would ask you to book in for the day you would like to follow. Please contact S M Bernard on hyningbookings@yahoo.co.uk or 01524 732684 or 01524 989380 before Monday 30th November if possible.

There will be a voluntary contribution of £10 for the day, but we would not want anyone who wishes to join us to be left out because of finance
