Public Ordinations Coming up at Padmaloka

Thu, 17 Sep, 2020 - 15:54

In just over a week Padmaloka will be opening it’s gates to men coming on retreat here for the first time since March. In the past few weeks we’ve been finalising our hygiene procedures, dusting off the dorms and hoovering down the carpets - heaving the great Padmaloka bellows and bringing the flames back up to retreat ready temperatures - so to speak.

The first retreat here will be an Ordination retreat, for five men who were due to be Ordained in April:

  • Clive Fletcher
  • Chris Petts
  • Michael Procter
  • Alex Stirling
  • Mike Whittam
