2012 at L'Abri à Suvigny

Having had a special time over the Easter Weekend to reflect on the Passion and Resurrection of Jesus, and an opportunity to renew vows at the shrine of St Columbanus, as well as to walk the ancient paths around Mortain, we have the following planned for summer 2012: -

De Spil Retreat – 5th to 12th August 2012 – The group will come with Victor to explore aspects of spirituality based on the book ‘Life of the Beloved’ by Henri Nouwen, within the monastic day. A creative outdoor project will also be offered. For rates, contact De Spil at  

Family Holiday Break – 12th to 19th August 2012 – an opportunity for people from the Community and beyond to have a holiday enjoying the surroundings, within the monastic day. Suggested donation – 20 euro or pounds per person per day.

De Spil Work Week – 19th to 26th August 2012 – a week where Dutch friends are welcome to help with the renovations within the monastic rhythm to the day. For rates, contact De Spil at

We will also host a Taizé service and fun musical evening in August. Please email for further information or visit our website

Individual Retreat – 27th to 31st August – time for individuals or couples to come and enjoy some quiet space for self and God within the monastic rhythm. Some direction can be given.
