WHO WE ARE
‘Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?’
Co1, 3, 5-16.
We are a group of Catholic families based in England. In 2014, having become aware that it was difficult to find retreat weekends for families in England, we decided to organise prayer weekends near London with Father Dominique Sterckx, a Carmelite priest. We are supported by the Diocese of Westminster.
Since we started, families who have been profoundly affected by their encounter with Christ, have volunteered to serve other families. Approximately ten families volunteer each year, either during the retreat weekends or at PULSE. We constantly marvel at these gifted people who put themselves forward in order as many families as possible with the opportunity to experience this adventure.
To breathe new life into families, through providing retreat weekends, organised by families for families, where prayer is taught and put into practice. Since Christ is encountered in prayer, prayer is at the heart of our mission.
