Parish Retreat

A joint Parish Retreat (IHM & St Columba’s) on Sat 21 and Sun 22 March 2020 will be held at the Bridgettine Convent, Iver. The theme of the retreat is “The Vocation and Mission of the Family in the Church and in the contemporary world enlightened by the Word of God”.

Our dear Bishop Peter, apologises for not being able to be with us anymore, because the election of the new bishop will take place on 19th March 2020. By encouraging us to continue our journey of faith with enthusiasm, he assures us he is keeping us in his prayers, and sends us his blessing.

Please register your interest in coming to the retreat by signing the sheet on the notice board or contacting the parish secretary via
