What: A weekend Lourdes Preparation Retreat
- Have fun
- meet young people from other schools
- build community and real relationships
- prepare for the experience of a pilgrimage to Lourdes
A pilgrimage to Lourdes is a really special experience for so many of our young people. The Kenelm Youth Trust would like to offer school groups, parish groups or solo pilgrims the opportunity to come on retreat to Soli and be led in a weekend of high quality preparation. The weekend is designed to complement the preparation already offered by group leaders, a preparation retreat offers the following inputs:
Magnificat - Who is Mary?
Why we process
St Bernadette and the story of Lourdes
Why do we go to Lourdes?
Service - Love in Action

This retreat is delivered in fun and engaging ways and balanced with opportunities to grow as a community, time for fellowship, prayer and a chance to get out and make the most of the beautiful countryside and the incredible facilities we have on site here in Alton. We have even built in a fundraising activity as a part of the weekend with a sponsored walk on the Sunday.
