Open Door Retreat Training

with Sr Marion Gormley

Open Door Retreats are a creative expression of both retreat and spiritual direction providing, for many, their first taste of accompaniment. Because it is not always possible for some people to get away for time to reflect and to pray, Open Door Retreat is one way of offering this opportunity locally. A group meets once a week for nine weeks, with a retreat leader. Participants make a commitment to daily prayer and come together to share their experience and to support one another.

This weekend course will introduce participants to the background, content and material used in an Open Door Retreat so that they will have the confidence and knowledge necessary to go and facilitate these retreats locally afterwards. This course is for spiritual directors and those in training for spiritual direction. For further information on Open Door Retreats, go to
