Walsingham Retreat - 2007

Maggie Clark leads the procession to the Slipper Chapel

Fr Tony Lester, O.Carm led the weekend on 27 - 29 April, 2007 - which at times was moving and at other times controversial, but always sincere and very thought provoking. It was good to feel safe in what we thought and ask the questions we often keep hidden.

Fr Tony’s visit to Germany was obviously still fresh in his mind as he told us some interesting stories and left us with good quotations, which he developed in a lovely way. He has a wonderful ability to make people feel good about themselves and totally loved by God.

Fr Tony’s quotation from St Hildergard will stay with us for a long time: “Listen to your desire for life it is the word of the Holy Spirit”: this lead to some interesting discussions all weekend.

Thank you to Jim Walton for organising another excellent retreat, and to Fr Tony Lester for leading it.
