Retreat Begins with Abbey Vespers Friday at 5:20 PM and concludes with lunch on Sunday at Noon.

Bishop Peter Smith will be our retreat master and offer five reflection presentations during the course of the retreat days.

We will be blessed by his spiritual, scriptural and personal insights.

Time for silence, personal prayer on the peaceful abbey grounds, liturgical prayer with the monks, evening social time with other retreatants, and the delicious and plentiful Abbey meals are all part of the retreat benefits.
