This is a residential, individually guided, silent retreat at the Christian Retreat House, led by Fr David Birchall SJ and team.

There will be a daily meeting of about 45 minutes with a spiritual guide and a daily Eucharist in the Catholic tradition.
The house is situated one mile outside of Hawick in the Scottish Borders.  The countryside is green and pleasant with the River Teviot running close to the Centre and plenty of space for country walks. The house itself has interesting grounds with places to sit and enjoy the views of the rolling hills and woods.

The Christian Centre has an attentive and dedicated team.  We shall be taking full-board. Your stay will be in a well-appointed single room with private bathroom.

The retreat begins with lunch at 1pm on Sunday 13th. There is an option for you to stay until lunch on Thursday17th and see your spiritual guide that morning. There will be a charge of £6 extra for this lunch. (Bedrooms have to be vacated by10am on the last morning).

There is a regular bus service between Edinburgh and Carlisle which stops close by to the Centre, within easy walking distance.  There is ample car parking space.  The whole Centre will be reserved for the individually guided retreat to help maintain a peaceful atmosphere.
