“I will call back into my memory the gifts I have received … I will ponder with deep affection how much God our Lord has done for me”

(St Ignatius, Spiritual Exercises, 234)

Since 1848, St Beuno’s has been a place of prayer and encounter with God.

What part has St Beuno’s played in your faith journey? Is there a person, a place or an experience that has helped you to find God at work in your life?

To help us give thanks and celebrate 175 years of St Beuno’s mission, and to inspire us to continue our work in the future, we are asking those who have known, lived and prayed in the house to share a moment from their faith history.

We are inviting contributions of between 400-600 words which can be shared on our website and in our monthly Friends of St Beuno’s e-news over the next year.

This might be a consoling moment from a retreat or course, a memory of someone who used to live or work in the house, a photo from your favourite corner of the house or grounds, a poem you wrote, or something else.

In thanksgiving for the gifts received in this time, help us to write a collective faith history of St Beuno’s, so that ‘stirred to profound gratitude’ we may become better able to love and serve God ‘in all things’ (St Ignatius).
