True prayer which absorbs the whole individual benefits not so much from the solitude of the desert as from interior recollection.
— St. Josemaria Escriva

Days of Recollection for Women

Charwick organizes mornings and evenings of Recollection every 2nd Tuesday and Thursday of each month. A recollection is a time of meditation and reflection in order to be in tune with God and be better able to place Him in all human activities.

A Recollection comprises two meditative talks given by a priest of the prelature of Opus Dei, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, examination of conscience, and a talk on the virtues.
