Advent Retreat with Daniel O'Leary - A Christmas Wish

How does one introduce Fr Daniel O’Leary? Those who have had the privilege to hear him at Ammerdown have used words such as “Simply brilliant!”, “Inspirational”, “Such fun”, “Communicated with passion and love” - and that’s only for starters!

We are therefore delighted that Daniel has agreed to come back in 2016 for an Advent retreat. A word of advice, though: if you are interested in attending, do not leave it too late to book as Daniel’s previous Ammerdown retreats have all been over-subscribed.

The theme for the 2016 Advent Retreat will be ‘A Christmas Wish’, a theme inspired by the following poem by the Mystic Hafiz:

 

'I wish I could show you,

when you are lonely or in darkness,

the Astonishing Light

of your Being.'

Fr Daniel O’Leary is a priest, writer and teacher. He is the award-winning author of fourteen books and a regular contributor to the ‘Tablet’. He leads conferences and retreats around the country.

N.B Please note that this is a 'Silent Retreat'. Silence will start after the first meal on the Friday, and end before lunch on the Sunday.
