What is a Retreat?
A retreat, whether made online or at a monastery or retreat centre, is essentially a time when we draw back a little from everyday activities in order to seek God. Usually it helps to have someone else acting as a guide and supporting us with prayer.
Your Retreat Guides
We are cloistered Benedictine nuns, not professional spiritual directors. We have been giving conventional retreats and days of recollection for several years but are now offering online retreats drawing on the ancient wisdom of the Catholic Church and of the Monastic Order to help people 'get in touch with God' where they are.
You can read more about us on our community web site: www.benedictinenuns.org.uk if you are using a desktop or large screen device, www.benedictinenuns.net if you are using a small-screen mobile device.

Making an Online Retreat
A virtual retreat is no substitute for spending a few days away in a monastic atmosphere, concentrating wholly on God; but our online retreats are meant for people who, for one reason or another, can’t do that.
Making a retreat online still makes demands on the individual. We can provide the material, but it is you, and the Holy Spirit, who must make the retreat.
