Special week of prayer for the pandemic to end. “To the pandemic of the virus we want to respond with the universality of prayer, of compassion, of tenderness”. (Pope Francis)
Update 19th March 2020
In these troubled days for everyone, we would like to assure you of the prayer of our IBVM community, for yourselves and your families. Likewise, we ask you for your prayer for us, especially for our most vulnerable sisters.
Spiritual Direction by qualified Loreto Sisters from the community is available by prior arrangement. This is available for both staying guests and for day visitors to the Centre.
During this time when many people are self-isolating, and while Loreto Centre is temporarily closed, we would like to offer the possibility of making an Individually Guided Retreat (any length, from 2 to 8 days) via Skype, WhatsApp, Zoom or Facetime (or even the phone!). The structure of the retreat can be tailored to your circumstances.
If you are interested, and for more information please contact me by email (email@example.com) with your contact information and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
We suggest a donation of £25 per session, or whatever can be afforded.
We ask you to pass this message on to anyone you know who might be interested.
United in prayer, and with best wishes,
Ewa Bem IBVM
Update 18th March 2020
A lot can happen in a day.
In line with government advice and guidelines, we have taken the decision to close the centre until the 30th of April 2020.
Before that date, hopefully, things will be much clearer and we will update you through the website and our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/loretollandudno/.
In the meantime, let us continue to pray with great confidence in the Lord’s power for healing for each of us and for our world.
At the Loreto Centre, we offer an ideal location for those of all religions and none seeking a quiet place for peace, rest and prayer away from the stresses of daily life.
The local environment offers plenty of walks and areas to sit and watch the world go by within the local environment. We are only a few minutes away from the coast and right next to the Great Orme, which offers breathtaking views of Llandudno and the surrounding area.
Loreto Centre is available for groups who wish to conduct their own retreat programme, those requiring respite from ministry, individuals who either wish to take part in our organised retreats or enjoy a quiet retreat alone. We have accommodation solutions to suit everyone, please ask us for details via our general enquiry page.
If you attended Loreto when it was a school, you can post memories of your time here on our History of the Loreto Centre page.
