Autumn Sabbatical Programme

Sabbatical Programme 1st – 28th October 2023

At Mount St Anne’s, we are offering a Sabbatical Programme which will give participants an opportunity to reflect on their life journey, be refreshed by new experiences and to be renewed by a variety of perspectives presented to them.

During our four-week programme, participants will be invited to deepen their connection with the spiritual cognitive and affective selves through diverse experiences.

Through a rhythm of well structured programmes, ritual, daily prayer and liturgy, participants may be both affirmed and challenged.
