Once a month we join together as a community to pray the divine office, share in the divine meal of communion, and sharing a conversation (see the topic below). This time is strongly encouraged for all who join us as Monastics and Practitioners. It is also open to anyone who wishes to join us.
Please come with bread and wine (or appropriate substitutes) so that you may particpate in communion with us.
Together we will be talking about Seeking Retreat with God. On our commitment you’ll see that we talk about taking an annual retreat with God. This is a part of our annual rhythm that we must be intentional about, must plan for, and must prioritize. So lets talk about what it might look like, what it does for us, and how we can ensure this retreat doesn’t slip through the cracks.
Seek retreat with God once a year. During his years of ministry Jesus would take time away from his work, and find rest. Sometimes this rest was alone, and other times it was in community. We should seek to get away at least once a year. Ideally this time should be in setting full of nature to help us reconnect with the earth in ways difficult in the city. While on retreat keep up with your prayer and fasting. During this retreat you should be disconnected from your lesser vocation.
