Sahara Desert Retreat in Morocco, 26 February – 11 March 2024

Desert expanse

This retreat, with Fr Arnaud and Deacon Vladimir from St Antony’s in Forest Gate, includes a day visiting Marrakesh and nine days in the Sahara.  It is designed for young adults but is open to all adults able to hike 4 – 6 hours a day for nine full days in the desert. The aim is to enable attendees to take a step back from daily activities and reflect on their spiritual life. Says Fr Arnaud: “A pilgrimage in the desert is a chance to disconnect in order to reconnect with ourselves and with God and to enjoy the bonding of a community.” 

Cost: £952 (plus flight).  Find out more at or phone Catherine at 07807 348223.
