Pastoral Programme

What we do > Retreats and Courses
At Douai Abbey we offer a programme of retreats, workshops, courses and day-schools which offer the opportunity for spiritual and personal development. The focus is generally on spirituality, theology, scripture, history and ministry.

We are gradually resuming our programme of retreats and reflection/quiet days as the pandemic recedes.
  1. Summer Programme
  2. Full 2022 Programme (September-December will be updated in due course)

When ready you can make a booking enquiry on the Bookings page. If for some reason you cannot or prefer not to use the booking page then you can call the Guestmaster on 0118 971 5399 or email him.

Bookings for Individual Guided Retreats and any other enquiries about the Pastoral Programme should be directed to Fr Peter by email or by calling 0118 971 5333.

**N.B. Bookings for each event will close two (2) weeks before the event begins. We kindly ask that you comply with the booking deadlines as we cannot guarantee a place after that.**
