The Gift of Scripture
Have you seen the exciting and prophetic document from the Bishops of England and Wales and of Scotland? We can help you explore the Scriptures as a means for living our lives.
"Ignorance of the Scriptures is ignorance of Christ" St Jerome
Good food, beautiful house, lovely grounds, near the beach … At St Joseph’s Prayer Centre we offer Scripture retreats where there is a chance to reflect and pray through the challenges given by the Word of God. These normally last for a weekend… WHAT A GIFT!
How do we do it?
Input … Drawing on the wisdom of contemporary Biblical study and putting it simply.
Sharing … Giving people a chance to talk about their life’s experience.
With Prayer …Throughout every session there are always times of prayer to help the process of reflection.
Parishes / Groups
To look at the Scriptures as a group can be very rewarding. We can offer evenings or days of reflection on the Scriptures to help your Parish or group grow a little more in understanding the Word of God. We can offer an introduction to the New Testament or to the Old Testament. Maybe a series of sessions on the Psalms or a particular Gospel.
