Romano Briton Ninian set aside his Cumbrian royal privileges to follow God’s call. After studies in Rome, on his way homeward he found his way for life in the inspiration of St. Martin in Tours. In Galloway he founded ‘Candida Casa’. From this place the message of Christ reached the known ‘ends of the the earth’ and within its embrace many came to learn the message, and their way of life. 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.
