How to Make Your Staycation Holy

We all need time with God to recharge, to seek conversion and allow Him to draw us closer to Him. While many retreat houses remain closed and foreign pilgrimages may not be possible, there are ways to seek that quality time without having to go abroad.

​​​​​This summer, dedicate a few days to God on pilgrimage or retreat as part of a staycation. A “staycation” is a holiday in your home country – it could be your own home, somewhere local to you, or another part of Britain. There are plenty of inspiring pilgrimage options in this country, and retreats can be self-guided if you have the right books at your disposal.

So nourish your soul this summer with these suggestions for a Catholic staycation.
