Ninian grew up in what is now Cumbria but felt a call to visit Rome.  On the way home, he stopped in France, stayed with St. Martin in Tours and found his way for life.  He then set up monastic settlements near his home and again in Galloway with his ‘Candida Casa’.  In this retreat, we will begin with the story of Ninian, follow the movement of his message through the landscape and how that has impacted Scotland and beyond.  We’ll also consider the need for healing and reconciliation when things have gone wrong. Retreat includes a pilgrimage on Saturday to Holystone with an ancient well attributed to Ninian.
