The sitting room

I felt very ‘held’ by the depth of your collective prayer and this enabled me to relax into my retreat. Thank you so much for the work that you do for Our Lord in providing a ‘safe place’ for retreatants simply to ‘be’. This is such a valuable ministry for the family of God in today’s world. - Linda

A place of beauty

I can't put into words how much better I feel. As we drove down the drive this morning my eyes were streaming with tears, just as they had been when I first walked in our bedroom last Sunday... a very special week in the caring, respectful serenity of Penhurst. My outlook on the months ahead is a lot brighter. -
