CANTERBURY, England — For those looking for “inspiring liturgies in the Franciscan Tradition” to help deepen prayer life, the Franciscan Centre for Christian Spirituality is holding its summer Franciscan directed retreat from Aug. 31 to Sept. 6.

According to a pamphlet, the center “is a venture launched by the Franciscan International Study Centre to allow us to respond to the desire for a spiritual home where the Franciscan Spiritual Tradition takes center stage.”

The weeklong retreat, led by Franciscan spiritual directors — religious priests, brothers and sisters of various nationalities — promises to be a positive spiritual experience in peaceful and beautiful surroundings. The total cost of the program is £275 (roughly $435 U.S.) with a non-refundable £50 deposit needed to secure a place.

Information about the center, including upcoming courses, events and retreats, can be found on its website.
