We have been so well looked after at the Briery (and you are definitely the best for food!!). It has been really good to get to know you
over the years and we have very much appreciated all your attention and care.”

“It was lovely to meet up with so many kind and loving friends, both old and new; to be able to attend daily Mass and to receive the Sacrament of Penance, and to be guided so well in our journey by the Retreat team. We also had the benefit of the delicious meals prepared for us by the catering staff, who were so patient and kind to those of us who had dietary requirements.”
