Christmas Retreat – Joseph, the Earthly Father of Jesus

Christmas Retreat – Joseph, the Earthly Father of Jesus

Saturday–Tuesday, December 23-26, 2017

The Gospels reveal very little about the man who, with Mary, nurtured and protected the young Jesus.

As we celebrate together the great mystery of the Incarnation, we will reflect on the life and character of Joseph through stories and art in the Christian tradition.

There will also be the opportunity to decorate the Guest House and join in the celebration of Christmas with the Sisters.

Led by Sr. Susanne Prue, SSJD.

  • Arrivals and registration 2–4 pm Saturday; ends after breakfast Tuesday.
  • Special holiday rate of $250 for this three-day retreat; deposit $50.
  • Registration deadline: December 16, 2017

  • All retreats and quiet days at St. John’s Convent take place in the milieu of a contemporary monastic community which has a daily rhythm of prayer. All guests are invited to take part in the daily Eucharist, and those staying overnight may like to join us in the Divine Office (Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer, and Compline).
