26th – 28th October 2012 @ Worth Abbey Benedictine Monastery
Every human person has a unique vocation. God is calling you by name!
The Called By Name retreat offers an opportunity for you to tune-in more deeply to the call of Christ in your life, to discern His will for you, discover deeper meaning and direction in your life, and to grow in the trust and freedom to respond generously to the Gospel.
The weekend will include talks from a range of speakers from different walks of life, including Fr Stephen Ortiger – Benedictine monk of Worth Abbey – and The Missionaries of Charity; Mass, Adoration and the opportunity for Reconciliation; Spiritual Accompaniment; space, silent prayer and reflection; discussion and fellowship.
The programme will follow the monastic rhythm of prayer, participating in the liturgy of the Benedictine monastic community at Worth. Participants will be able to benefit from the sanctuary of Worth Abbey: it's Church and beautiful grounds, and the atmosphere of peace and prayer. The retreat is not aimed only at those discerning a possible call to religious life/priesthood, but to every young person seeking to know and live the call of Christ.
The content of the weekend will include exploring different states of life (marriage, religious life, priesthood, etc), the personal vocation (who you are!), and the work/mission/task of your vocation (what you do!), as well as tools for discernment.
