Quiet Days

What is a Quiet Day?

A quiet day is a way of going on retreat for one day. It can be a gentle introduction for newcomers to retreats but also a time to stop and be refreshed for those who have more experience. You can go on a quiet day with a group and then it usually starts at 10 and finishes at 4, but it is also possible to spend a day in a retreat house on your own. If you join a group quiet day there will be input by a leader on the theme of the day and opportunity to spend time on your own in silent refection. 

You may go on a Quiet Day for a variety of reasons: 

  • A wish for some quiet time but are limited for time.
  • A need some time for reflection away from work or family.
  • A desire to explore your spiritual life and deepen your relationship with God but do not know where to start.
  •  A longing to know more about prayer.

How to arrange a Quiet Day for your parish?

There are a variety of quiet days available in retreat houses and in parishes. (See retreats)
But if you would like to arrange your own Quiet Day for your parish, there is a group of people within the Spirituality Network who would be happy to facilitate the day for you.
