THEOLOGY OF THE BODY RETREAT Friday 5th to Thursday 11th July 2019

What is ECHO?
ECHO is a Theology of the Body Retreat taking place this year in Walsingham in collaboration between the Shrine and Dumb Ox Ministries in the USA. At ECHO, we will immerse ourselves in, unpack, and explore the themes of prayer, our identity, and our mission to love. We are all created to be in personal relationship with God, and each of us are created as a unique, unrepeatable man or woman with a vocation to love like God. At ECHO, we probe into questions like: What does it mean to be a man or woman? What does it mean to be a son/daughter, brother/sister, husband/wife, father/mother? What does it mean to really love like GOD? What does it mean to have authentic, pure, life-giving relationships? How can being single, dating, religious life, marriage become a life-giving experience? much more!

What is ECHO for?
ECHO is for young adults aged 18-35. Everyone who applies will be considered but due to capacity constraints, overall mix of male/female, and other factors, spaces at ECHO Walsingham will be necessarily limited.

Where is it taking place?
ECHO will take place at various locations in Walsingham. Participants will stay in the Shrine’s residential accommodation in Elmham House and Dowry House.

How much does it cost?
The cost has yet to be finalised but will include accommodation and meals. We are applying for funding to subsidise places. Potential applicants are also encouraged to seek help with funding: your parish might help with funding this week of spiritual formation.
