Bringing the Mountain to the People
You are invited to share in the experience that is the Center for Spiritual Formation – an experience that is founded on a mountain in southeast central Pennsylvania and extends to the world at large. Whether at our Orchard Hill Retreat Center, or through our virtual teachings and offerings, the Center’s mission expands from the mountain to the people, bringing God’s sanctuary of peace and presence to wherever you are. The world is loud and noisy – the Center invites you into a place where you may know the still quiet voice of God.
This two year program offers monthly gatherings to learn, to expand and nurture the art of spiritual direction/ companioning for those discerning a charism of holy listening.
Persons from throughout the Northeast United States have begun to seek us out to equip them for the ministry of listening and spiritual guidance. We hold retreats 22 weekends over two years.
Our new – and permanent – home sits high on a mountaintop near Millerstown, PA. Orchard Hill includes a picnic pavilion, labyrinth and hiking trails, and an all-weather adult retreat facility.
