Prayer from the Night

Oblate Autumn Retreat – at St Mary’s Convent Wantage   25-29 October 2021

This Retreat will be led by Rev’d Adrian Botwright from the Diocese of York.   Adrian is a very experienced retreat leader as well as being a scuba-diving chaplain!  His own journey has led him to explore in fresh ways ‘prayer from the night’.  As the clocks fall back at the end of October, signalling the start of longer hours of darkness, it will be timely to re-consider our own journey of prayer and how this vocation to pray might continue to take shape in our lives, and our life as a community of Oblates.

There will be two led sessions each day and a chance for 1:1 spiritual accompaniment if that would be useful.

This is full-board at the Convent and limited to 12 places.  There will be the opportunity to join in prayer with the Sisters for the Office in chapel (subject to the Covid-19 guidance at that time).

Start: arrivals from 2 pm on Monday 25 October.  Tea at 3 pm.  First session 3.45 pm 

Finish: Friday 29 October with lunch.

Please email (preferably) your booking to and to   Booking Form available here.  The Guest wing will keep the practical details for the administration of the retreat and financial record keeping with the Bursar.  Susan will keep your details only in order to help with the leading of the Retreat, liaising with the retreat leader, and collating feedback at the end.  If there is anything else that you think she needs to know please email her directly.

This is clearly going to be a popular retreat so don’t delay in signing up! There are 12 places.


Costs of Retreats and Quiet Days:

Please check the new rates/deposit required with the Guest Wing.
