The Psalms were the prayers of ancient
Israel. They sustained them in times of great trial and during
periods of peace and prosperity. Psalms are also an integral part of
our Christian worship and personal prayer. Our retreat will
include: daily Eucharist, periods of contemplative prayer, rituals,
and reflections on the Psalms, along with poems that echo the spirit
of the Psalms in our own day. Retreatants are invited to bring their
Bibles, journals and, if they wish, one or more poems that have
spoken to them on their faith journey.

retreat as an 8 day Retreat, a one weekend option, or a one day
