Upcoming Events

November 4 – 6, 2016 – Silent Retreat
“Silence Speaks” – A Retreat with Liz Watson
“Silence touches our common life together so that we can share a sense of the mysterious power both in our midst and beyond us”  –  John Main OSB, The Way of Unknowing

This retreat will resonate particularly well with the 11th step of the 12 step programs of recovery: Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
