Our 2018 programme of retreats
While it is not possible to offer our usual programme of Quiet Days this year, we are continuing to offer these two days. At Lent, we will not quite have gone (although we are hoping to spend Lent sorting out ….); by Advent, we will hopefully be established in our new setting, 23 Trinity Street, Bungay.
It is a case of ‘watch this space’ as to how they are run; but, at the very least, we can continue to provide some quiet space for people to prepare and reflect at these important times in the Church’s year.
Quiet Days have been an important part of our life at Ditchingham, as well as those who join us here; we hope some of you will continue to journey with us. On a practical point, you will still need to bring a packed lunch on both days, and the cost remains £12. Please write to the convent secretary to book.

To be arranged
Our Quiet Days start at 10am and finish at 4.30pm and cost £12, payable in advance. There are normally 2 or 3 guided sessions throughout the day, plus some solitary time for you to wonder through our grounds and/or use the Chapel for private meditation.
Our residential retreats begin at 4pm on the Monday, and finish after breakfast on the Friday morning. The cost is £220 inclusively.
You will need to bring a packed lunch when attending our quiet days, but drinks and cakes are provided by the Community.
