About Clergy Retreat 2 | Kincumber (Directed)
Kincumber Directed Retreat: 6-10 May 2019
“Accompanying you on your retreat path”
Fr Martin Davies
Fr Martin Davies has been involved in spiritual accompaniment and retreat ministries since the 1990s. His approach is broadly the creation and sustaining of liturgical and prayer life, through the perspectives of Benedictine values and practices.
Martin’s Benedictine attraction was fostered through participation with his Cistercian neighbours at Kopua Abbey NZ, over a number of years. He also undertook monastic tradition studies, including at Mepkin Abbey USA, and a guided study of Aelred of Rievaulx at Tarrawarra Abbey, Victoria. Martin’s continued reading and reflection range from the Desert tradition, Cistercian and contemporary writings on prayer, desire, and humility.
Ordained priest in 1982, Martin served in NZ parishes and as diocesan ministry educator. He co-mentored a two year formation in spiritual direction course in Waiapu diocese. After pursuing further study in spiritual formation of clergy, Martin was Director of St James’ Institute, Sydney. He is priest in charge at Stroud.
