Lenten Retreat with St Elijah the Prophet

Inspired by Elijah’s journey to Mount Horeb where he experienced the Living God, we will make this year’s Lenten journey in his company. Elijah is the foremost of all biblical prophets and continues to be a source of inspiration for Christians today. He is an archetypal figure in the Carmelite tradition and as Carmelites we claim him as our father.

On Ash Wednesday you will receive an email welcoming you to the retreat. We will provide you with materials for personal reflection and suggest ways you could build into your day according to your own peculiar circumstances practices that will foster the spirit of the retreat.

Each following Wednesday, you will also receive an email with a link to our website where you’ll find the resources for the week’s reflection (audio, text and video). These will offer you inspirations for the journey towards Easter, and you will continue to have access to them throughout the season of Lent. Also, on each Sunday of Lent and each day of Holy Week and Easter Sunday, you’ll receive Bible Reflections inspired by Carmelite spirituality, along with short texts for prayer.

During this Lent we would be offering a number of Individually Guided Sessions (IGS) and Group Guided Sessions (GGS) through Zoom for a very affordable fee. Places are VERY LIMITED. If you’re interested, please indicate when completing the form and we would contact you to arrange it.
