Holy Week Retreat

April 17th - April 21st

You are welcome to join us for our annual Holy Week Retreat. This year our main presenter will be one of our dedicated oblates, Melinda D'Grossa, many of you know her. The monks will also offer presentations throughout the retreat.
Melinda will take us into a deeper reflection into the mystery of the Last Supper. She will offer two meditations on Holy Thursday and two on Good Friday, with a small gathering for reflections on Holy Saturday. We are keeping the cost of the retreat the same as it has been in recent years - the cost will be the normal room rate of $85.00 per night - this includes a room with private bath, all meals beginning with supper on the day of arrival and ending with breakfast on the day of departure. A free will love offering may be made to Melida D'Grossa. Please join us and share these sacred days with us...
