Helpers’ Annual Retreat in Walsingham
We are very pleased to welcome Fr Morty O’Shea, SOLT, to lead our Retreat this year. Fr. Morty O’Shea is one of our wonderful pro-life priests who has led our vigils [weekly ones at Streatham as well as our monthly ones, for many, many years] and our Retreats at Humanae Vitae House in Braemar, Scotland, until he was moved to Ireland. We are so pleased that he will be with us again this May in Walsingham.
Usually we stay at Elmham House in Walsingham but this year it is being renovated and there is limited accommodation for groups plus the meeting room we normally use is not available.
We are going to stay at the newly opened Dowry House Retreat run by The Sisters of the Community of Our Lady of Walsingham (you may remember Sister Camilla who gave us excellent talks on previous retreats). The Sisters have been asked to run this retreat house for the Shrine by Bishop Arnold of East Anglia and they are looking forward to welcoming the Helpers of God’s Precious Infants. Dowry House (which is I believe the site where two Augustinian priests were martyred when the Priory was destroyed) has its own Chapel, Meeting rooms and is ideal for groups who wish to have a prayerful retreat. Rooms are provided on a full board basis and lunch is the main meal of the day with a lighter meal in the evening.
Dowry House sleeps 26 people, so to avoid disappointment, please contact me soon if you wish to secure a place enclosing your booking form and deposit of £30. If you have any queries, please ask and I will try to answer.
