Theme and Flavour
Welcome to the Run to the Son web page. We will be spending time together the weekend of 23rd-25th June 2017, to deepen our encounter with Jesus, the Son of God, who brings real purpose and meaning to our lives. So many in our society and culture do not know Him, or the beauty of an encounter with Him. Some have walked away from our faith without knowing that it is within the Church that we experience and grow in our love of Him.
Do come, and learn with others, how we can make many more, His disciples.”
Bishop Mark O'Toole
‘The Dawn from on high will break upon us.’ Luke 1: 78
This is a weekend of worship, prayer and fellowship, organised by Buckfast Abbey and the Plymouth Diocesan Evangelisation team, to help inspire you for mission. It is open to everyone in our Diocese and beyond. We just ask that under 18's must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
You will share in:
• a day of growth in discipleship led by the Franciscans of the Renewal
• a night vigil of prayer welcoming the dawn in the splendour of the Blessed Sacrament Chapel
• seeing the iconic window of Christ come alive with the light of the new day
• a midnight procession of the Blessed Sacrament through the grounds of Buckfast Abbey
• music ministry
• time to nurture your inner disciple
Camping is free, shared and single accommodation can be booked. You may arrive from 19.00 on Friday evening.
