SPONSORED BY ST MARY’S TOWERS RETREAT CENTRE
ST Mary’s Towers Retreat Centre, set on 500ha of natural bushland, provides a peaceful environment with a supportive, praying community for anyone seeking a deeper relationship with God.
The centre offers a range of creative retreats to nurture prayer and provide insight into the rich Christian tradition of meditation and biblical wisdom, as well as the areas of grief and healing and contemplative living for today.
A new three-month sabbatical experience in Contemplative Prayer and Living will be offered in January and March next year.
Private and directed retreats, as well as he Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius of Loyola and the opportunity to pray with the Writings of the Mystics are also available.
“A wonderful atmosphere, deep silence, beautiful surroundings and a gentle, welcoming attitude,” a retreatant said.
“The deep silence is so much appreciated; the example and strength of the praying community at Douglas Park is a gift for the retreatants; one can sense the unity,” another said.
“(It’s been) a precious time with God and my prayer companion that has helped me allow God to share my passion and lovingly ‘carry me’ instead of me trying to go it alone,” a recent retreatant said.
