Like the ‘Woman at the Well’ in John’s Gospel women today are thirsting to understand how Scripture speaks to them through women and as women, and gives hope and meaning to their daily lives.
This is the basis of our popular programme, 'Women of the Well', which continues in 2016 in the form of a weekend retreat which will take place in Knock.
Focusiing on the story of the 'Woman of the Well', the retreat will offer different moments of prayer, reflection and sharing in an atmosphere of creativity and mutual encouragement. Listening to ourselves and to the voices of some of our sisters from around the world we hope to rediscover the living water that has its source in the depths of our own hearts...
All women are welcome to come and join us in Knock: there is no need to have taken part in any of the previous sessions of 'Women of the Well' in Galway.
- This is a weekend retreat and participants are expected to attend from the Friday evening until Sunday lunchtime.
- Participants are also responsible for finding their own accommodation in Knock or the surrounding area. For those who wish the Knock House Hotel is offering a special rate for participants on the retreat.
