The annual GATHER Conference unites people from across the Diocese of Plymouth and further afield for a weekend of faith, formation and friendship. In 2020 we will gather at the Best Western Livermead Cliff Hotel, Torquay from Friday 31 January – Sunday 2 February.

Sr Gemma is a teacher, spiritual and retreat director and a passionate advocate of the treasure that is the spiritual tradition of St Ignatius of Loyola; Mgr Robert Draper, Vicar General of the Diocese of Plymouth. Fr Robert is a parish priest, a teacher and preacher and has a gift of bringing scripture to life through his reflections; Fr Anthony O’Gorman, parish priest of Newquay, Cornwall.
