Retreat – Countering Consumerism

In his new letter, Gaudete et Exsultate (Rejoice and Be Glad), Pope Francis encourages us to open our eyes, ears and hearts, to be unsettled by the words of the Gospel and expand our often limited horizons.

We’re gathering together to do just that on Thursday 29 November at the Ty Croeso Centre, Llantarnam Abbey, Cwmbran NP44 3Y (11-4 pm). We’ll be exploring Scripture and Church teaching and be inspired by one another and CAFOD’s campaigning and work overseas.This day will offer a chance to explore what do we mean by being holy, and how can we get there in our busy lives? At this event we will invite you into a space to reflect on the message of Pope Francis, to look at the challenge of the culture of consumerism and to reflect on how we can care for our common home.

This will be a retreat, a day of reflection and a chance to go deeper in your faith life. We would be delighted if you could join us.

This is a free event, but please do let us know if you can make it to help with our arrangements.

Here is a poster for you to display.
