Franciscan Insights

Programme of our courses and events at the friary for 2017

The programme of courses at Hilfield for 2017 brings together a number of Franciscan themes: The care of creation, an attention to the ordinary things of life, a passion for peace, meeting Christ in the outsider, and the life of prayer and contemplation. All of them are pointers to living wisely, gently,  justly and joyfully in the world today.

To avoid disappointment please note that until we have received your booking form your place is not confirmed. Places can only be held for up to one week. Information/booking leaflets will be available here soon.


All of these courses and retreats are residential in individual rooms and sharing the rhythm of the life of the Friary Community. There are no fixed charges, but for each event we suggest an appropriate donation to cover the cost of your visit.
