$100.00 – $650.00

A 5-Day Centering Prayer & Lectio Divina Retreat

September 26-30, 2022

Mt. Angel Abbey Guesthouse, Mt. Angel, Oregon

Sponsored by Contemplative Outreach of Portland & Willamette Valley

Cloud in the shape of a heart

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

This retreat is for practitioners of Centering Prayer who wish to dive deeper into Lectio Divina. We will weave together silence, listening and sharing. Grand Silence (no eye contact) will be observed, except for opening and closing programs and contemplative Soul Friending circles.

Expansive views of the Willamette Valley, opportunities to pray with the monks, or simply soaking in the peaceful atmosphere, will enhance your experience.

The retreat begins with registration 3-5 pm Monday, September 26 (please do not arrive before 3 pm) and ends at 10 am Friday, September 30 (rooms need to be vacated by 10 am but you are welcome to stay on the premises afterward).

The guesthouse is in compliance with State of Oregon Covid-19 regulations.

Registration fee: $650

Includes 4 nights in a private room with private bath. Meals by Bon Appetit, who will attempt to honor special requests. Elevators and ADA room available. Space limited, register early!
