Diocese of Durham – Ordination Retreat 30th June -4th July 2021

We welcomed Ordinands from the Diocese of Durham on Wednesday 30th June as they are here on a Guided Retreat to enjoy the grounds and Tranquillity of  Minsteracres as they prepare to be Ordained on Sunday 4th July.

Their attendance this year is extra special as last year’s event had taken place on Zoom, so this year feels extra special for Alistair Prince, Diocesan Director Of Ordinands, to be with everyone and enjoy the experience of this guided retreat.

The five day schedule is well balanced following on from breakfast gathering for Morning Prayer, input on the theme of Time & Creation, Eucharist, and more importantly time to walk the grounds, time for space and to connect with God.

The Ordination ceremony takes place in Durham Cathedral and the staff and Community send then all best wishes on your next the chapter their lives.
