Parish Retreat

Join this our 2nd Parish retreat

Recharge your spiritual battery together with other brothers and sisters of Christchurch West Parish who journey with you. We all need to make time for our souls and dare to confront different kinds of darkness in our life: Are there fears of the future or pressures and trends in society that make us lose our deepest selves? Are there complacencies and selfish desires within that suffocate our yearnings for God? Dare even more to let God speak and make of your lives, and of our Church, a lighthouse for others.
