A walking retreat to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne of the coast of North East England. We will walk part of St Cuthbert’s way and across the ancient pilgrims path to Holy Island. There will be opportunity for prayer, reflection, walking and lots of socialising!
This is an event for Young Adults (20’s and 30’s) organised by FCJ Young Adult Network.

Cost £85 (not including travel to and from the retreat)

Each day we will drive to the start of the walk and arrange to be collected form the end. The terrain is easy but open countryside and so it is essential to have good walking shoes, a backpack and waterproof jacket. Each day we will have prayer together and opportunity for Mass on a couple of the days.
Accommodation is in a Bunkhouse on the mainland. This is basic accommodation with bunkbeds and simple facilities. There is an open fire and some storage heating. Further information about the accommodation: http://www.bunkhousenorthumberland.co.uk/
