Lent Retreat 2014


Welcome to our Retreat for Lent 2014. The theme of the Retreat is 'Called to be Saints', drawing its inspiration from Saint Paul's letter to the Romans.

You will find a new session of the retreat available on the Sacred Space website each week. You can also access the audio via this page, or you can download it from our SoundCloud account. You can take the retreat at your own pace, in a place that suits you, using the text and audio to create a time of prayerful attention.
