Clergy Retreat

A certain Cardinal at the Seminary some years ago!

The FSSP are offering a Clergy Retreat at the Seminary at Wigratzbad in Bavaria Clergy retreat in Bavaria between 15-19 April.  Fr Armand de Mallarey, who runs the FSSP House in Reading will be leading the Retreat.  The theme is: ‘The priest and the Eucharist in the recent Magisterium of the Church’. Just click on the "Clergy Retreat" link above for further details, as there are just a few places left.

Fr de Mallarey writes:
Come and pray next door to one of the largest international seminaries in Europe (motherhouse of an institute admitting over 40 new seminarians each year) in Pope Benedict’s native Bavaria! What a grace to be supported during our retreat by the presence and prayer of 90 seminarians and priests from various European countries, singing in choir the peaceful Gregorian melodies 4 times a day. What a good deed in return to include them and every candidate to the priesthood in our prayer intentions. Wigratzbad is also a Marian shrine and we will ask the Mother of God to teach us how to better know, love and serve Her divine Son in the Most Holy Eucharist.

I visited the Seminary last year and was very impressed with the seminarians and the beautiful scenery and churches of Bavaria, as well as the opportunity to take part in the day to day liturgical life of the Seminary.
