Does anyone know of any 'good' discernment retreat for men in the UK anytime soon?

I can't think of any off-hand, but I do post details of some I receive on the following websites: and

--more info at
--the reason I mention it is that Fr de Malleray FSSP, who is leading this retreat, lead an excellent Vocations retreat there, and he is a good man to give advice.

Another person you might want to speak to is Fr Stephen Langridge, of Southwark Vocations (they have a blog too). He is a good and helpful man.

Do feel free to drop me a line, maybe with your location, and I'll try to help!

God bless you!
