A correction to the Lent series. If you have registered already, all is well!

Read below to see times during the Wednesdays.

WCCM-USA is inviting you to

40 Days of Lent online series.


“Beauty and Silence”


Dear Friends,

You are warmly invited to our Lenten Online Retreat Beauty and Silence. The Lent Retreat is based on the in-person retreat held in April at Montreat Conference Center in North Carolina.

During the 40 days of Lent, you will receive 7 weekly emails to start you thinking, and hopefully inspire you as you prepare for the Live Zoom(s) on Wednesdays. You will have the opportunity to join us either Wednesday afternoon, or Wednesday evening, or both! The teaching material covered will be the same.

As in previous years, we will begin with a presentation or practice and move into our time of meditation together. At the end, those who would like to stay for discussion, conversation or questions are welcome to join Kathleen in the Zoom room.

Our topics will include: beauty in the eye of the beholder, a graced gaze, beauty from Sufi, Jewish and Native American perspective, and beauty as approach ... to name a few. It will, hopefully, be a rich time of inquiry and experience for us all.

In 2024 we are asking for a donation of $1.00 per day of Lent--which is a donation of $40.00 to WCCM-USA. Your donation allows us to present online and in person retreats and events and will support the upcoming John Main Seminar in New Harmony, Indiana in July.

To make a donation, click on the link provided below and indicate that your donation is for USA Programs.


There is scholarship assistance available for those who find the above donation a difficulty. Please contact [email protected] with your request.

Hope to see you on Wednesdays for the 40 days of Lent series, Beauty and Silence. Your one registration will allow you to attend either or both of the Wednesday Lent gatherings.

Each Wednesday at 3:30pm EST and 7:30pm EST
