Rydal Hall: The best place to escape on polling day

A day of quiet reflection is being offered at Rydal Hall near Ambleside – coincidentally on the day of the general election.

The event, Lectio Divina – a prayerful dialogue in the Scriptures, will be led by a Catholic priest, Father Luiz Ruscillo.

It aims to give visitors time to enjoy reflections on passages from the Gospels, with guidance on how to pray with, and in, them.

The day is the third in a series of six quiet days throughout the year reflecting the Christian journey. They offer individuals a brief oasis of space in their busy lives to reflect upon the spiritual life and to pray in the peace and beauty of Rydal. The day starts with coffee at 9.30am and ends with tea at 4.00pm. The cost per person, including a simple lunch and refreshments, is £20.

Fr. Luiz Ruscillo is Parish Priest of Hornby and Kirby Lonsdale, and Head of the Diocese of Lancaster Education Service. He was ordained in 1990 and studied Scripture in Rome and Jerusalem.

For further information and bookings for the event on May 7, please call 015394 32050  or email: mail@rydalhall.org.
