Advent Introductions to Benedictine Spirituality, Saturday 25th November and Saturday 2nd December 10.30am

25th November: The Other Side of Silence – An exploration of the Benedictine tradition of silent, personal prayer. What is it, and what does it mean for my life? An opportunity to deepen our relationship with God in Advent through encountering the age-old monastic practice of prayerful attentiveness.

2nd December: Spiritual Reading and the Path of Prayer – An Advent introduction to the Benedictine practice of Spiritual Reading; a quiet, meditative encounter with the lives and witness of great Christian writers of the Church’s past and present. How can reading the Christian classics deepen our encounter with God?

We will meet in the Abbey Church from 10.15am for registration and refreshments. We will then proceed to the Spencer Building, Worth School for a talk and further engagement with our theme, which will be delivered by Abbot Mark Barrett. The morning will conclude in time to attend Midday Prayer at 1pm in the Abbey Church followed by a light lunch.
