We are SPEC (speculum vitae – mirror to life), the retreat centre for young people in Pinner, NW London, UK of the diocese of Westminster.
We strive to be a formation house (community living, praying, formation sessions) for our missionaries in the new evangelisation out of which flows our mission and ministry with the young people of our diocese that come on retreat with us.
The young people of the Catholic schools (predominantly middle and high school and 5th graders) and parishes (confirmation groups) of Westminster diocese come on retreat on our beautiful 7 acre property during week days and weekends. We currently have 12 missionaries that serve with us on a voluntary basis for a 1 year commitment to assist in running the retreats. After the month of induction (mid-August to September) when our missionaries arrive, we continue to have two formation slots every Tuesday, keeping that day as a conscious community day. We strive to be both a formation house and a retreat centre because when the missionaries are well invested in, the retreats will automatically be better and more authentic as well. We have a prayer rhythm and our own chapel and a rule of life (modeled with permission after the Life Teen rule of life for missions).
This past year we completed our new building for residential retreats. We are currently actively recruiting for around 14 missionaries aged 18-25 to serve the Lord in His vineyard here in London ministering to the young people of the Westminster diocese for the 2018-2019 academic year.
