Retreats For Women

A silent retreat is a special time to break from the usual activities of life, a time to reflect and to ask oneself: How is life going? Where is my life heading? Where is God in all this? It is a time to assess the present and to apply resolutions in a practical way to one's daily life.

Weekend retreats offer daily Mass, time for personal prayer and talks on central themes related to living a Christian life within the specific circumstances of daily life. There are also opportunities for confession and personal spiritual direction.

The spiritual and doctrinal activities conducted by Heathgrove Study Centre are entrusted to Opus Dei, a personal Prelature of the Catholic Church. For more information:
