Annual MMP Retreat for Oceania in 2021

The Marian Movement of Priests (MMP) is pleased to advise that our Annual Retreat for Oceania in 2021 will be held at the St Clement’s (Redemptorist) Retreat Centre at GALONG NSW (near Yass) from Monday 23rd August 2021 to Friday 27th August 2021 inclusive.

The Retreat will be led by Fr Hugh Thomas, the priest responsible for the MMP in Oceania. The Retreat is open to all Priests, Religious, Lay Associates and friends. The retreat commences with lunch at 1 pm on Monday 23rd August 2021 and concludes after lunch on Friday 27th August 2021. All necessary information will be provided to participants prior to the Retreat; the full daily program will be provided to participants on arrival.

A range of room-types are available. Some rooms have single beds; others have twin single beds, or double or queen sized beds. All rooms have desks, and some form of heating. Some rooms access shared bathroom facilities, while others have their own ensuites. There are also a small number of flats available (flats include double/queen beds, a desk and a sofa for relaxation). Note that flats, rooms with twin beds or double/queen beds will normally be allocated to two people choosing to share in order to maximise the number of people who can attend. The cost of the retreat (including accommodation, linen, and all meals) varies with room-type (see overleaf); rooms with ensuites generally cost $100 pp more.

Transport to the Retreat Centre can be undertaken either:

– by CAR (1.5 hr from Canberra; 2.5 hr from Albury, Orange or Griffith; 3.5 hr from Sydney; 6 hr from Melbourne); or

– by TRAIN (the nearest railway station is Harden, 23 km from the Retreat Centre – train travelers will be met at the station); or
