Programme

The Roman Catholic Church in Sweden and the Church of Sweden invite you to Quiet Days.

On four Saturdays we offer a joint, digital room for stillness and reflection. We want to give you a deeper spiritual life at a time marked by worry and a sense of loss of the life we enjoyed before the pandemic. We hope to contribute comfort and help for your soul to find rest.

WHEN?

The Holy Spirit can help us to find a deeper meaning in everything that is difficult. Therefore, the Quiet Days begin on the Eve of Pentecost, Saturday 22nd May. That day the first material will be published on the website.

After that new material will be published on 29th May, 5th June and 12th June.

WHERE?

This is an entirely digital retreat so all the material will be available on andligboning.se 

WHO?

Everyone is welcome to take part. No previous knowledge is required, and you do not have to be used to retreats. You can participate at your own pace.

HOW?

Cardinal Anders Arborelius and Bishop Karin Johannesson will lead these Quiet Days through their conversations.

If you would like to receive ongoing information and reminders, you can apply to our newsletter by clicking on this link to register for our newsletter. Then you will receive an e-mail every Saturday morning with the content for that day.
