Retreats

The Abbey is pleased to offer opportunities for people to respond to Jesus’ invitation to His disciples, ‘come away with me; let us go alone to a quiet place and rest for a while.’ (Mark 6:31).  It’s in dedicated times like this that participants are able to get in touch with God, themselves, and each other in ways that aren’t normally possible in the normal pace and places of life.

Though we are glad to lead Retreats at a site of your choice, The Abbey itself, though within a mile of the city center, is a remarkably quiet and peaceful place for a day or overnight Retreat.

Guided Retreat:  We are able to offer a setting in which the details of hospitality are taken care of, as well as specific guidance from the Scriptures and from experience on how to Retreat with Jesus.  This can be done in a day, overnight, or multi-day experience.

Hosted Retreat:  We are able to take care of the details of hospitality, so that you or the leader of your choice can enter into a Retreat of your own design, either for a day, an overnight, or multi-day experience.

Home Retreat:  We would be glad to prepare materials for your personal use at home or the location of your choice, so that you can receive assistance in entering into the Presence of the Lord.  For a sample of what we offer in this regard, please click HERE.

As was the case with Peter and John, we pray that our Retreats will mean that those who meet you after your experience with us will “recognize that (you have) been with Jesus” (Acts 4:13).
