Winter Wisdom Circles
Join a winter Wisdom Circle and benefit from the shared wisdom of others.
Being Sanctuary
3 Monday evenings
February 22 - March 8
7:30-9:00pm, via Zoom
Friends, each one of us has a sanctuary within if we can only pause long enough. Join me in this time of being sanctuary together as we find ways to bring its peace into our daily lives.
In this Wisdom Circle, we will share in holy listening, inviting space to hear the sacred rumblings that we each bring, and then create together a blessing of going forth, which is a Celtic practice when moving from one place to another. 
We will be inspired by the voices of Brother Lawrence, a 17c. cook and Carmelite lay brother, Macrina Wiederkehr, beloved poet and monastic, as well as Howard Thurman, philosopher and theologian.

Seeing the Word: Women of the Bible
Mondays, March 1-22
6:30-7:30 pm, via Zoom
This Wisdom Circle is a contemplative prayer practice using illuminations from the St John’s Bible. These beautiful images bring to life passages from Scripture, helping us to engage with the Word, encounter the Divine, and enact the Message in our daily lives.

Journey with us through the Lenten season and explore the often-overlooked women of the Bible. We will get to see their faith, hope, courage, and love highlighted in the St John’s Bible.

Celebrating Black History Month
Game Changer
By Heather Strang

I discovered Victoria Lynn Alexander’s Anti-racist Resource Guide as I began to wonder how I can be more involved in transforming racism, even in my daily life. This site is a rich collection of written and recorded resources for understanding and exploring how to live a life of anti-racism, and what that might look like beyond simply “getting it."

In honor of Black History Month we are giving away one of the above books to one lucky winner! 

To enter, visit our social media and follow the instructions there.

Giveaway ends 2/24/21 at 8:00pm EST. Winner will be announced 2/25/21!
For more books or resources by Black authors, visit The Retreat House Bookshop website.

Personal Retreat
The Retreat House offers sanctuary to anyone who wishes to get away and to rest, whether for a few hours or a few days. We invite you to be here for a time, perhaps as part of your Lenten journey.

For a Personal Retreat Day, you set aside all or part of a day to be at the Retreat House by yourself or with a companion.

For a Hermitage Overnight, you reserve a guest room for one or more nights.
This is a wonderful opportunity to be still, to renew your spirit, to open your heart to God.

Enjoy soothing meditative walks, beautiful St. Paul’s church, sip a cup of tea, peruse the Retreat House library, or put your feet up and close your eyes.

The suggested donation for a Personal Retreat Day is $50, and $75/night for a Hermitage Overnight. But please don’t let finances get in the way!

Learn more about spending time with a Retreat House spiritual director in person or online.
