St. Cassian’s Centre is owned and funded by the De La Salle Brothers – a religious order founded in France over 300 years ago by St. John Baptist de La Salle. A retreat at St. Cassian’s is facilitated by ‘The Kintbury Team’ – a group of young people who live and work at the Centre. The team is made up of 8-10 Volunteers, usually on a Gap Year, and 4 Retreat Staff.
Working with schools and other groups of young people from across England and Wales and beyond, this community is guided ultimately by the example and teaching of Jesus – His welcome and inclusion of all – and our ethos of Lasallian Spirituality. This underpins each retreat – the Kintbury Experience – with an emphasis on ‘Faith, Fun and Friendship’, designed to help each one of us to get to know ourselves better, making new or improving friendships and relationships, and to appreciate the place of God in our lives and in the world. This includes:
- Celebrating our Faith together, through prayer, worship and other activities;
- The presentation of ideas – to reflect on and share thoughts;
- Working in groups – large and small.
