Before the Cross all is stripped bare

Maundy Thursday 6 March 2023
10am to 4pm at Sacrista Prebend Retreat House

This is a creative and reflective retreat day in quiet based on the characters of the passion.

Image of a cross with setting sunFocussing on Jesus being stripped of his clothing, and that the cross similarly strips away all our sin and false masks, this creative retreat explores the characters found in the Passion narrative and their journeys.

Using music, reflections, poetry, and times of personal prayer, we are invited to enter into the lives of these witnesses to the Passion as we embark upon our own Holy Week journey to the cross.

James Pacey is a Church of England Priest currently serving as a hospital chaplain. Prior to ordination he worked as a theatre director and holds a particular interest in the relationship between theatre and worship.

Easter 2023 sees him directing The Nottingham Passion, a new and dynamic portrayal of the Passion, being staged in St. Mary’s in the Lace Market March 31st and April 1st. Anyone signing up to the retreat day will receive a complimentary ticket to the performance.
