Centering Prayer and Lectio Divina Retreat

October 19, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Join us for a quiet day away from our busy lives.  

We'll gather at the beautiful grounds of St. Andrew's Abbey in Valyermo, California (just north of Los Angeles) for a day of quiet community.  https://www.saintandrewsabbey.com

We begin at 9:00 am and end at 3:00 pm.  

Please arrive by 9:00 am when you will have a few minutes to enjoy the Continental Breakfast provided by the Monks of the Abbey.  We will then experience a time of Centering Prayer together, followed by a time of Lectio Divina reading and meditating.  There will then be time for individual quiet exploration of the grounds of the Abbey (Stations of the Cross, Praying at the duck pond and many other places of quiet provided).  At noon, if you wish, you may join the Monks for Mass in the Chapel, followed by a healthy and delicious lunch.  After lunch there will be more quiet individual time to pray and explore.  We will close the day with Centering Prayer, then a time of sharing.
