About the event

Join Sister Eveleen Retreat House and Carol Renouf, trained Spiritual Director together with her husband Colin Renouf, Ignatian Spiritual Director, for this 2-night retreat, with periods of silence.  We will consider each person within the parable: the Father, the youngest son and the older brother. Reflective questions will be provided after each input session. Henri Nouwen’s book, “The Return of the Prodigal Son: a Story of Homecoming” will be drawn upon as a basis for the retreat. 

About the hosts: Colin and Carol Renouf have a strong interest in Contemplative Spirituality and enjoy leading others into a deeper experience of God. Teaching, retreat leading and accompanying others in their spiritual journey is something they both love to do. 

Family is really important to them, they have four adult children, with partners and eleven grandchildren. 

Colin with Carol’s support was a Baptist Pastor for 24 years, but is now a Catholic. 

He has been a Spiritual Director for over 25 years. They live in Christchurch and are both involved in Community Ministry. 

Cost (including all meals): $330. 

If you'd like to attend but the cost is prohibitive, please get in touch as we may be able to assist you.
