Come and visit
St Clement's next year will once again offer a wide range of retreats spanning liturgy, music, art, healing and guided reflections for men and women of all ages, clergy, religious and lay people.
us in 2016
The year's activities begin with the popular music retreat weekend on 5 to 7 February.
Singers, musicians and all people interested in music for liturgy are invited to spend a weekend to pray, rest and explore the liturgy with presenters Sr Carmel Pilcher RSJ and Sr Margaret Cusack RSJ. This is an opportunity to explore music resources, workshop issues, network with musicians and singers from other parishes, learn new music, develop support for those with fewer resources, pray together and be renewed.
Join us to pray and paint
Join a “pop-up” art community for fellowship, for learning and to bring a contemplative spirit and shared wisdom to your art work. Come and enjoy the inspiration with other artists and St Clement’s artist-in-residence Sue Orchison on 12 to 14 February.
Married couples weekend
This retreat will be a series of guided reflections drawing on the wisdom of the Christian vision of marriage and family. It will consider some of the cultural forces that shape modern relationships. Presented by former editor of The Majellan Family magazine Fr Michael Gilbert CSsR, lay theologian Christian Jacobs-Vandegeer and his wife Jennifer, it will be held on the weekend of 11 to 13 March.
Come on Emmaus Journey
The first of two Emmaus Journey week-long retreats will be held on 7 to 11 March. It will be presented by Fr David Hore CSsR, who ministers in Colombo, Sri Lanka, and who knows St Clement's well having undertaken his novitiate at Galong.
This retreat is tailored for older and retired men and women to help them reflect peacefully on the daily blessings of God and on God's faithful and unfailing presence in their lives.
