Come and enjoy some reflection, silence and solitude in the beautiful Marist grounds. Holy Name of Mary Church is usually open.
Typically, our reflection mornings follow this format: we begin with an input from our speaker, followed by a period of personal reflection. You might take some morning tea at this time if you wish. There follows another period of input. The there is another period of reflection. You may stay in the hall, wander in the grounds or find a spot to sit in the sum. We try to maintain the silence. Finally, we gather for conversation with our presenter and each other.
Please put some time aside for yourself and join us for this beautiful experience.
