What: A weekend Lourdes Preparation Retreat (or weekday if this works better for your group)
- 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 your school group the opportunity to come on retreat to Soli and be led in a weekend of high quality preparation. We would like to pilot the opportunity this year with a view to refining the offering and enabling as many schools as possible to make it a part of their Lourdes preparation programme for 2020. Designed to complement the preparation already offered in schools a preparation retreat could involve any of the following input:
Magnificat - Who is Mary?
Why we process
St Bernadette and the story of Lourdes
Why do we go to Lourdes?
Service - Love in Action
Naturally all input would be tailored to meet the needs of your young people, 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 would love to welcome schools from a particular area, or those who usually share the same hotel in Lourdes. Get in touch and tell us what you would like to see. We could even look at finding a way to build in a fundraising activity as a part of the weekend.
