What God arranges for us to experience at each moment is the best and holiest thing that could happen to us.

~ Jean-Pierre de Caussade

Each day will include 3 hours of Centering Prayer, Grand Silence, and two sessions of Lectio practice. We will weave together deep silence with contemplative listening and responding. 

Join Us on the Spiritual Journey

We are excited about the upcoming retreat at Mt. Angel, September 26-30, 2022. We have reserved four nights (Monday afternoon through Friday morning) and are trying out a new format for this shorter experience.

There will still be lots of Centering Prayer (3 hours/day total) and Grand Silence. In addition, twice a day we will present a Sacred Reading in the manner of Lectio Divina, followed by a time of Soul Sharing with one or two others. On Wednesday evening we have a special guest, Sister Dorothy Jean Beyer from Queen of Angels Monastery. And for those who love to be outside, there is an opportunity to do Visio Divina in Nature.

Registration is officially closed, but if you are interested in attending contact Benneth Husted at bhusted@easystreet.net as soon as possible to see if we can make room for one more!

Registration fee is $650 and includes a private room with private bath and all meals.

Pay Deposit (or full registration fee) via PayPal:

Please note, that PayPal says “donate” but the payment is applied to your registration.
