Quiet Days & Led Retreat: the Guest Wing daily or overnight charge, with the opportunity to make a contribution towards the costs of leadership.

IGR: Guest Wing overnight charge for four nights, plus £45.

In response to suggestions made at the Summer Meeting, we shall be offering an additional IGR in May, as well as 8 places on the September IGR. We hope that Oblates will find this extra provision helpful. One consequence of having more IGRs is that there will be an additional call on Oblate funds.

Facilitators are paid £25 for each guidance session (ie £75 for a Monday-Friday retreat). After careful consideration, Council has agreed to ask those coming on an IGR to contribute £45 towards the cost of guidance. BUT we are particularly concerned that cost should not prevent Oblates from making an IGR. There are funds available to help and there need be no embarrassment in accessing them. To do this, please get in touch with Sister Stella or with Antonia.
