Clergy Reading Week

February 5 @ 10:00 am - February 9 @ 10:00 am


Leader: Revd Canon Marion Russell


An opportunity to take time away from the parish to read, reflect, walk, chat, rest and sleep. You are invited to bring along books of your own choice of a theological or spiritual nature. All who are present share with the group which books they have chosen and why. This often leads to conversations with each other during the retreat about books of mutual – or diverse – interest.

After that introduction, apart from meal and prayer times, the remainder of this retreat is relaxed and unstructured – a time of refreshment for body, mind and soul in a place of beauty and peace. The cost can be paid from your CMD retreat grant. If you have not been involved in this event before and would like to know more, please contact Revd Canon Marion Russell by email at

For bookings, please contact Parcevall Hall. If you would like to use your Diocese of Leeds CMD/CME grant, please mention this when making your booking.

Marion is Vicar of Embsay with Eastby and the Clergy Development Officer for the Ripon Episcopal Area, working with curates in training and supporting other clergy.
