Retreat Day with the Parish Council.


“In the Dominican tradition, study is essentially a reflective pondering on the word of God and on the world we live in.

Such study, rooted in prayer, opens our minds to truth. It helps to discern in faith the real needs of people through an understanding of their thought and culture.

The purpose of our study, as understood by St Dominic, is so to transform us that we become lights of the world and preachers of a life-giving word.”
Constitutions 33
