Feedback from the 2018 Headteachers' National Retreat

Discovering the Divine Life - Fr Simon Bishop SJ


     Thank you. Fr Simon – what a gentle, powerful leader. He was so encouraging   and accepting. I felt very comfortable and welcome. I’ve not experienced      anything like this before. I enjoyed the permission to take time and space with no ‘to do’ list at the end! Thank you.


     Thank you. This was unexpected, challenging but needed.


     A real Retreat, not a Conference which is what it should be.


     A perfect location with welcome opportunities and time to contemplate, reflect and pray.


     Thank you so much for another wonderful Retreat. It is a special spiritual experience and enables me to further enhance my prayer life and that of the school.


     Fr Simon’s talks reminded me of the value of listening, thoughtful listening, to others, to myself, to God.


     CJM were superb – many thanks; they made the whole experience even more special.
