St Mary's students' first ever Retreat at Kintbury

On 8 May six students and two staff went on the school’s first ever retreat to St Cassian’s Centre, Kintbury in the heart of the Berkshire countryside.

The six girls who went could not believe the beauty of their surroundings.  Eleven students from another school joined us for a very spiritual and prayerful experience. 

On the first morning we explored who we are, where we see ourselves in the world and what God might have planned for us.  This was done in small groups with new friends.  The second day we looked at the meaning of reconciliation.  Reconciling ourselves to God’s plan and reconciling with others when we get into a tangled mess.

It’s fair to say that after three nights the girls still did not want to come home and are planning an early return in Year 11.
