CARJ Urban Network Retreat

18th April 2015 @ 8:00 am - 19th April 2015 @ 5:00 pm

Towards a More Just, More Equal,
More Cooperative Society

A Residential Retreat
Sponsored by the CARJ Urban Network

18-19 April 2015
St Mary’s Centre, Handsworth
98 Hunters Rd, Birmingham B19 1EB

The Retreat will provide an opportunity to explore our vision of the good society, using the recent publication – On Rock or Sand? * – as a framework for reflection.

We will recall the historical roots of 21st century Britain, consider key issues (eg democracy, the economy, health, education, work, etc) and try to discern a renewed vision for the future. There will be time for quiet reflection, sharing, prayer and discernment.

Theresa Byrne will facilitate the Retreat. Individual participants, who are comfortable doing so, will be invited to prepare brief reflections to introduce each session.

This event is intended for members of the CARJ Urban Network and any others who are interested in the spiritual challenge of creating a more just, more equal, more cooperative society. While CARJ is a Catholic organisation, the gathering is open to participants from diverse backgrounds and beliefs.

The Retreat will begin with lunch on Saturday 18 April and end after lunch on Sunday 19 April 2015.
