Betwixt St. Francis and St. Luke: Taking Healing Lessons from Creation

This Quiet Day comes not long after the observance of Creationtide in the Church calendar, as well as between the festivals of St. Francis and St. Luke. It’s a time of year when creation begins its rest from the productivity of earlier months and enters a time of restoration and healing in preparation for new birth. Jesus often took examples from creation into His teaching and creation can speak to us today.

During this Quiet Day we will reflect on how we can listen to God speaking words of love and healing to us as we in turn strive to protect His glorious creation.

There will be some addresses with space to pray and reflect on your own. You are welcome to use the Convent Chapels, Art Room and garden for your personal prayer.

Leader: Revd Angela Butler, retired priest living in Newquay, Cornwall: former Parish Priest (St. Albans & Gloucester), Diocesan Missioner and member of Archbishop’s Springboard team
