    Default Derelict Monks Retreat- March 2015


    Ok so this is my first post and I apologise in advance for any mistakes (and for the photo quality!!). If you have any pointers for my next report, they'd be greatly appreciated!

    A friend mentioned this place so we took a quick after work trip to have a look. I have got some more photos but didn't want to bore you all...

    A bit of history taken from http://thesrc.org.uk/

    The Society of Retreat Conductors was established in 1924 as a group of priests of Anglo-Catholic tradition who shared a common discipline and whose purpose was to study the Spiritual Exercises, train retreat leaders, give retreats in the Ignatian tradition and run retreat houses.
    It ran its own retreat house, in Kent between 1940 and 2005.
    The SRC is now an ecumenical body of experienced retreat givers who welcome into membership all retreat givers and spiritual directors who are willing to work within an Ignatian ethos. Its financial resources are being used to encourage and facilitate the provision of continuing Ignatian training both for its members and for others, and to work with other bodies in the promotion of the practice of retreat. Supervision may be offered, but members may also seek it elsewhere according to their own individual situation.

    Ignatian tradition, ecumenical, experienced retreat givers, Ignatian ethos...are all words in this report I don't understand. Recon the residents knew what the word "Anus" meant in this anglo catholic retreat though.
    Great report though. :)
