Retreat Description: In his mercy, God planned for beginnings in our lives. Birthdays, anniversaries, seasons, cycles, are all examples of beginnings. The month of January brings with it the opportunity to begin again.
Perhaps 2017 presented you with trials and heartaches. Perhaps it was a year of triumphs and milestones. Regardless of how the year was lived out, it is important not to move forward too quickly. Take this opportunity to reflect on how God was at work in your life, and anticipate how He will be present to you in the coming season.
Join us for a day of Reflection and Anticipation. Short reflections will be given, with directed silent activities. The Abbey gardens and grounds provide the perfect setting for contemplation. Rest, reflect, and anticipate, knowing that God, who was with you in the past year, will be with you in the coming year as well.
