"Life In Christ" Retreat Series


Q. Who are these retreats for?

Laity, clergy, all Episcopalians, and even those non-Episcopalians who are curious about the Christian spiritual life.

 
Q. What happens there?

In Richardton, we worship communally with the monks and one another; learn; enjoy good food, conversation, and stunning prairie scenery; discuss theological themes after viewing a movie; and rest. These weekends are designed to help us grow in our Life in Christ. Some come for only one night, while others stay for two.
