Here at St Joseph’s
The Hermitage Retreat
Anywhere by Invitation
These evenings offer opportunity
to people whose work and family commitments do not always allow them the chance of a making
a whole day or weekend retreat.
They are usually held monthly
Here at St Joseph's
in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel,
on a Wednesday evening, 7 -
We generally begin the evenings
in Lent and continue
through until November
(A donation is asked towards the expenses for each evening).
(NB There has been no set programme for 2018,
as other commitments have not allowed
These were began in 1994 by Eric and Marion St. John Foti from their home at Hermitage Hall, just outside Downham Market in Norfolk. In 2006 they had to retire and Hermitage Hall was sold, but "Hermitage" retreats continue to be held three or four times a year at the Rosmini Centre,
(Our Lady & St Charles Church), Wisbech.
HERMITAGE RETREAT DATES 2018
We had hoped to begin in Lent but this year
dates have been difficult to arrange.
Wednesday 5th September
Thursday 29th November
These can be anywhere and any day, dependent on who invites us.
Over the years we have travelled to a number
of venues in England and Wales arranging days of prayer and reflection for various ministry groups in parishes, schools and communities,
as well as other Christian church groups.
