Thinking of going on a retreat?
Visit the Epiphany Group
Each day of Lent The Ignatian Spirituality Centre (ISC) in Glasgow is offering Bible readings, poems and other material for you to pray in your own home.
The material offered takes the shape of St Ignatius’ Spiritual Exercises.
Retreats are asked to sign up on line (www.lentretreat.uk) if they wish to complete the retreat which is free.
The ISC also suggest that those praying with material might like to meet weekly to introduce some of the themes of the retreat, share your journey and help you with your prayer.
This is not compulsory for the retreat but would help people get much more out of it. If you want to join a local group contact www.lentretreat.uk directly.

This course aims to help people to pray and live reflectively by offering an opportunity to explore faith, discover meaning, and come to a deeper relationship with God.
For whom is the course intended?
The course is intended for those of different denominations and none. No particular ability in prayer is required, only a desire for God.
- Different ways of praying taken from Ignatian, Celtic and other spiritual traditions.
- Awareness of our different perceptions of God. The use of a journal and the value of self-awareness as aids to reflective living.
- Prayer experienced through music, art and movement.
- An introduction to Ignatian discernment, through which a person may come to make choices which celebrate the unique giftedness conferred on them by the Creator.
The method is experience-based and reflective. It includes small group sharing. Also, because of the participatory nature of the course, it is important that there is a commitment to attend regularly.
In addition to the weekly, or monthly, group meetings – depending on location – participants are offered the opportunity of one-to-one spiritual accompaniment.
Towards the end of the course there is a short retreat.
