Lighting Fires - A Holy Spirit Retreat

A 5 day retreat organised by Fr Jesse Maingot OP, preparing you to receive a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.


“The Spirit immediately drove him...” Mark 1:12

A word from Fr Jesse Maingot OP:

Love and knowledge are inseparable. We cannot love what we do not know. Over these days of retreat, we will have some brief formation teachings on the Holy Spirit. The hope is that we can grow in intimacy with the Holy Spirit by growing in a deeper knowledge of the Spirit. We will explore who the Spirit is in the plan of salvation. The goal is for us to grow in our desire for the Holy Spirit in our lives and to live with a holy expectation of the Spirit's activity in our lives.

The retreat will include:

  • Daily audio teachings or meditations ending with a prayer for you
  • Daily scripture passages to meditate upon 
  • Quotes from the Saints and Early Church Fathers about the Holy Spirit

Prayer from the retreat

Come, Holy Spirit!

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful, and enkindle in us the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and we shall be created, and you shall renew the face of the earth. Amen.
