Retreats, Workshops, & Conferences
Lenten Retreat: Yearning to Be Whole, March 22-24
Have you ever felt like you were living a divided life? Are you discouraged by our divided world? If so, you are not alone. Parker Palmer writes, “I yearn to be whole, but dividedness often seems the easier choice.”
Join us for our Lenten retreat, March 22-24, as we explore Palmer’s transformational ideas about “welcoming the soul and weaving community in a wounded world.” How can “circles of trust” help us reclaim a sense of integrity in our lives and foster wholeness in our relationships, our workplaces, and our work in the world?
Participants are encouraged to read A Hidden Wholeness: The Journey toward an Undivided Life, in preparation for our retreat discussions and reflections.
Lenten retreats at Cathedral Ridge provide time and space away from daily routine and cares so participants can delve deeply into themes of the season. The days will be framed by worship and nutritious meals and there will be time set aside for rest, self-care, prayer, confession and spiritual direction, and exploring the sacred space of Cathedral Ridge.
Registration closes March 15.

Partnership Vicars Retreat
The Partnership Vicars have met on retreat at Cathedral Ridge for the past four years. This retreat time has been extremely valuable for the priests to talk about their unique position of caring for multiple congregations and training Licensed Lay Leaders. It has been a time of refreshment, development, learning, support, and sharing for these clergy.
Standing Committee Retreats
The Standing Committee of The Episcopal Diocese of Colorado works to shape and support the wider mission strategy for the Church in Colorado. They meet six times annually. In addition, they are committed to participating in an annual retreat at Cathedral Ridge to review, revisit, and strengthen their ministry together. This offering is open only to members of the Standing Committee.
Lay Pastoral Leaders Retreat
For the past two years, the Lay Pastoral Leaders have met at Cathedral Ridge for training, community building, and support. The Lay Pastoral Leaders are licensed lay leaders who are able to provide communion from the reserved sacrament. The Lay Pastoral Leaders provide spiritual leadership in small, rural congregations served by a partnership vicar when the partnership vicar is not present in their particular congregation on a Sunday. This meeting has been essential in developing this ministry for the diocese, for consistent training and support, and for leadership development for the lay leaders.
