Preparing for Christmas

‘Eternal Birth’; An Online Retreat

A time to prepare for Christmas has become traditional within WCCM and we will be joining together again this year online with Laurence Freeman OSB.

Laurence Freeman is a Benedictine monk and the spiritual successor of John Main OSB.  He is the Director of The World Community for Christian Meditation and Bonnevaux, its retreat centre in France.  Author, retreat leader and international speaker, Fr Laurence sees the contemplative as the essential dimension of all spirituality.

Fr Laurence will lead the retreat with times of meditation and reflection on the real meaning of this special time. Please join us.
