Feedback from the 2019 Headteachers' National Retreat

The Power of the Word - Fr Richard Ounsworth OP


  • Thank you so much. Another inspiring speaker at Retreat to make us think and deepen our knowledge of scripture.  It is such a valuable experience each year.
  • Once again I felt spiritually renewed and in general have been given a new sense of energy, ready to face the rest of the term ahead. (And even the M6 North on a Friday afternoon!)
  • The liturgies, prayers and songs were so uplifting and treasured as these did renew my drooping spirit.  Thank you for enabling us to have time to reflect and to share this experience together from a vast range of areas.  Mass was brilliant and uplifting.  Thank you.
  • A fabulous experience to take time to reflect, pray, so vital in the job we do, and to meet like-minded leaders from other schools across the country who truly understand the challenges and joys of Headship in a Catholic school.
  • CJM were incredible and really made the Retreat a spiritual experience.
