Most Londoners are caught up in a whirl of noise and activity and rarely have time out to reflect. This March, a group of men and women from St Mary Islington will be remedying this by heading off on a weekend's retreat, which will include 24 hours in silence.
Last year's Big Silence really helped people to slow down, be still and listen to the voice of God. We're trusting that this year's retreat will similarly refresh us and help us to return to our daily lives a little bit less frantic.
The retreat will take place at the Domus Mariae Convent in Essex on 9-11 March. The convent is set in beautiful gardens, which, together with the chapel, provide peaceful spaces for reflection.
