Following lunch, a guided activity will be offered in which you may participate. Or, you may use the afternoon for hiking our trails, walking the Labyrinth, or taking a much-needed nap! We regather at 3:30 for sharing and communion before leaving at 4:30. Come for each Sabbath or select a few. 0.5 CEU’s per session. COST is $25 per session. Bring a bag lunch!

Practicing the Presence Of God: A Silent Retreat in The Benedictine Tradition

In the silence, The Word becomes more audible; His Peace permeates more deeply, and there is refreshment that comes from time apart. Come away to the quiet, to the calm, to the Creator. Share rich liturgy and holy hours through the day and night. Experience communion and consolation. Be made new from the inside out.

No upcoming dates are scheduled for this retreat.

Shared Sorrow: A Faith Community's Response to Grief & Mourning dates and registration information.

Shared Sorrow: A Faith Community's Response to Grief & Mourning

People do not resolve, recover from, or “get over” grief, but they can, over time, become reconciled to their losses as they find hope, healing, and renewed meaning. This workshop is an opportunity for clergy, church staff and laity to explore the mourner’s six reconciliation needs and to consider ways for their faith communities to respond.

Ron and Carol received training in Death & Grief studies from Dr. Alan Wolfelt the founder of The Center for Loss and Life Transition. They both served as companions at Olivia’s House, a grief & loss center for children. Carol uses her roles as educator and writer to heighten awareness of the dimensions of grief and mourning. Ron holds an MA in Theology and serves as Assistant Director of The Center for Spiritual Formation.

No upcoming dates are scheduled for this retreat.
