One Day Retreat Programme

One Day Retreats offer a flexible programme of prayer and reflection

Prayer and contemplative reflection were central to the life of Saint Patrick. It was his trust in the Lord, guided by prayer that allowed him to come to understand the presence of the Lord in his life.

The spiritual reflection from the Confession of Saint Patrick guides the One Day Retreat;

“I bind to myself this day the power of God to guide me.”

The popular One Day Retreats, running for 30+ years, continue to facilitate a wide range of people who would want to come on pilgrimage to Lough Derg.

The day retreat is open to adults and not suited to children. Fasting and Walking barefooted is not required.
