Praying the Hours at the Summer SolsticeThis weekend is an invitation to mark the mid-point of the year by following the monastic rhythm of daily prayer, or Liturgy of the Hours as it is also known.

As well as praying the full twenty-four hour cycle of prayer, there will be a mixture of teaching, group discussion and time to reflect and enjoy the environment of the Cathedral Close.

Participants will learn about the origins and development of the Liturgy of the Hours and also consider how this enduring pattern of prayer can inspire a regular life of prayer in daily life. The weekend will conclude by joining the Cathedral congregation for Sunday morning Eucharist.


Price  £199, includes all meals, refreshments and accommodation. Places are limited.
