The St James’ Institute presents: St James’ Retreat: Attentiveness to God: Insights from Evelyn Underhill
Friday afternoon 10 September until Sunday 12 September | St Mary’s Towers, Douglas Park | $245
The theme for St James’ 2021 retreat is “Attentiveness to God: Insights from Evelyn Underhill.” Associate Professor Robyn Wrigley-Carr will be our retreat speaker. Drawing upon Underhill’s retreat talks and prayers, Robyn will lead us on a journey of attending more fully to God. Singers from The Choir of St James’ will lead us in singing of various services during the retreat.
Robyn’s books include Evelyn Underhill’s Prayer Book (editor, 2018) and The Spiritual Formation of Evelyn Underhill (2020). She is currently completing a book of Advent meditations, also drawing on the writings of Evelyn Underhill, to be published later this year.
Dr Wrigley-Carr has led spiritual retreats in Australia and the UK over the past few years. Her PhD in theology is from the University of St Andrews, Scotland.
$245 per person, includes accommodation and meals. Retreat cost is not included in the annual subscription package.
