We can receive groups of up to 50 people for day retreats. This may be of particular interest to parish and college groups, RCIA classes etc.
Day retreats at the Monastery consist of Divine Liturgy, prayer, talks, silence, and discussion. They provide an opportunity to experience the Eastern Church’s liturgy in a prayerful monastic atmosphere, as well as allowing visitors to share some wonderful food and discussion with the monks. Lunch or brunch after Liturgy and refreshments in the afternoon are included.
Parish groups, youth groups, students, and all other types of faith groups who come to the monastery for a day of retreat leave having had a powerful experience. Most importantly, a day retreat provides an opportunity to draw closer to Christ that will enrich your community.
