Holy Trinity and St Hugh, along with the other Anglican Churches of the Riviera, have the opportunity of going on retreat every year to the Benedictine convent of Notre-Dame-de-Laghet. The tradition extends back over more than twenty years.
This year’s Retreat will be from 5.30 p.m. Friday, March 8 until 1.30 p.m. Sunday, March 10.
Canon Mary Haddad from the American Cathedral in Paris will lead the Retreat. Last summer she led a Quiet Day at St Hugh’s Vence. Several of the participants encouraged me to ask to lead the annual Lenten Retreat.
The theme Mary has chosen is:
Confronting loss, suffering and death: A Lenten Retreat
I thought I was alone who suffered.
I went on top of the house,
And found every house on fire.
We will use scripture along with the poetry of Mary Oliver and others, and engage throughout the retreat in the spiritual practices of meditation and journaling.
