Enjoy a Holiday With a Difference on Lake Como in 2018

Enjoy a Holiday With a Difference on Lake Como in 2018

By the Rev. Roger Williams | Chaplain, Church of the Ascension, Cadenabbia – Lake Como, Italy

If in the past you have visited Lake Como, popular from the Grand Tour onwards with visitors from the UK and Ireland and from many other countries, you may have expereinced the Anglican  Church of the Ascension at Cadenabbia (next to the Passenger and Car ferry terminal). Cadenabbia is in the central lake area, which includes the beautiful towns of Bellagio, Menaggio, Tremezzo and Varenna, to name a few.

In mid-October 2018 the Anglican Church will be hosting a retreat, centered at Cadenabbia.

The church was built in 1891 by a group of English-speaking residents and today still provides a place for visitors and residents to worship or simply to stop and have a few moments of quiet in its beautiful interior. It is also a cherished place to celebrate a wedding.

In mid-October 2018 the Anglican Church will be hosting a retreat, centered at Cadenabbia, and providing participants the opportunity to spend time at some beautiful and significant sites which Trip Advisor does not mention. The retreat will be led by an experienced English Spiritual Director.

If a week’s retreat in beautiful surroundings, with stimulating spiritual and historical reflection, meeting local residents and like-minded international visitors, as well as visiting some unusual ancient sites of worship are appealing and of interest to you, please get in touch.

A very special time is assured for this small group of approximately 25 participants. There will also be time for you to explore the beauty of the area and visit some of the towns on spectacular Lake Como. An average level of physical ability and health is required, as some of the sites involve walking.

The cost for the program, with 5 night’s half-board accommodation, is 750 euros; travel to and from Cadenabbia is not included.
