Over 300 to attend Spirituality Festival, Canterbury Cathedral, Saturday 20 September

On Saturday 20 September, over 300 people will be attending Canterbury Diocese’s Spirituality Festival, held in Canterbury Cathedral.

Entitled ‘Taste and See’, the festival will provide an opportunity for participants from all walks of life to explore their spirituality and deepen their faith.

The day includes hands-on workshops on themes such as understanding different spirituality styles, experiencing Ignatian prayer, exploring pilgrimage, understanding Benedictine prayer, using prayer labyrinths and learning to pray without words.

The Bishop of Dover, the Rt Revd Trevor Willmott, who will be leading the welcome and introduction to the day, commented: “Within the ambit of our magnificent cathedral this new festival will provide a space to listen, reflect and actively engage in spirituality, drawing on many different traditions and using local sources and practitioners.”

The Spirituality Festival starts at 9.30am and concludes with Evensong at 3.15pm. Details of workshops can be found at: https://www.canterburydiocese.org/spiritualityfestival  With 300 attending, the Festival is now at full capacity.
