Sat 10th Nov: CAFOD retreat ‘Countering Comsumerism’ Book your place

What does it mean to be holy?
How can we find holiness given our busy modern lives?

Countering Consumerism Retreat 2018 Leeds

Pope Francis offers some ideas in his new letter, Gaudete et Exsultate (Rejoice and Be Glad). He encourages us to open our eyes, ears and hearts, to be unsettled by the words of the Gospel and expand our often limited horizons.

Book your place on the retreat

We are invited to be disturbed by faith, challenge the culture of consumerism and respond to the Pope’s profound invitation to care for our common home. Pope Francis asks us to find time for our own holiness.

So this autumn, take time out of your everyday life to explore Scripture and Church teaching together and be inspired by one another and CAFOD’s campaigning and work overseas.

The retreats are free of charge and all are welcome, whether or not you have been involved in CAFODs campaigns
