Hello my name’s Alex and I’m from Essex. I’m a retreat leader here at Castlerigg manor, before I worked as a volunteer at Walsingham house in Brentwood diocese. I’m currently studying at Maryvale institute doing youth ministry and school chaplaincy before hopefully completing a full theology degree. I love sport and I’m a keen swimmer and martial artist competing competitively in nationals and internationals, I love the mountains and try to spend as much time climbing or walking as possible. I’m also very creative and tend to build DIY projects in my spare time. I have ambitions of either being a teacher or an officer in the Army, but for now I’m very happy here leading retreats!
