March

Returning and Rest Lenten Retreat, March 6-8, 2020
Our Ash Wednesday liturgy invites us to the observance of a holy Lent, “by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting, and self-denial; and by reading and meditating on God’s holy Word.” These classic spiritual practices have stood the test of time, creating a space for God to act. Join us as we return to these basic Christian disciplines and listen for God’s Word in our lives this Lent. Participants will gain practical tools and resources for their faith journeys that can be practiced individually and in community. Our time of returning and rest will include ample space for napping, hiking, and private reflection. The natural beauty and gracious hospitality of Cathedral Ridge provide the setting for our retreat.
Retreat leader: The Rev. Kim Seidman, Vicar and Executive Director of Cathedral Ridge.
Cost: $175

Registration will open December 1.
