Women's Retreat Day


Our Retreat Day will have the theme of ‘Creativity’ and be led by Sister Heather Francis of the Order of the Holy Paraclete, Whitby.  Here’s what she says about herself:

I am a Science graduate (in Botany and Ecology) and a teacher, and have worked in St Hilda's School, Whitby.  Before and after joining the Community I also taught in Zimbabwe and Swaziland.  I did a 'fill-in' at St Benedict's, Jo'burg, just before Independence, spent a wonderful three years in Mid Craigie, Dundee in the mid-90s and have recently returned to Whitby after 2 years in Bishopthorpe Palace.  Who said religious life was dull?

My interests are education and young people (I particularly like teenagers!) and the Voluntary Sector.  I have been a college governor with interest in Special Educational Needs and post-16 non-academic students.

I am a 'clergy daughter' with an inherited interest in Reader ministry, and a member of the York Diocese Vocations Team.

If this encourages you to join us please book here

Should you be unable to get yourself to Thicket Priory please request a lift at the time of booking, and we will endeavour to put you in touch with someone who can help.
