Upcoming Retreat Day

When we were in Rome we had an amazing tour of the Vatican Museums and St Peter's Basilica by Sr Emanuela from the Missionaries of Divine Revelation.  The Missionaries of Divine Revelation are a relatively new congregation and their main work is catechesis.  They are official guides of St Peter's Basilica and the Vatican Museums.  At present they have one English sister, Sr Emanuela, who is originally from Wigan.

Sr Emanuela is coming back over to England soon to take part in a retreat, which sounds like it would be a great day.  The retreat is taking place on Saturday 9th March in Birmingham.  Below is the poster and information for the day.  I would seriously encourage anyone who is able to go TO GO!!  Sr Emanuela is lovely and speaks about her faith in such a loving way that brings it alive to all who hear her.

And what better way to prepare for Easter than a day of prayer, reflection and fellowship with other young people and an opportunity to ask those questions that you have.

So check out the retreat but also check out the Missionaries of Divine Revelation (no other tour guide compares to them in Rome!)

Their website is and they have a facebook page at
