Lenten Quiet Day

Lenten Quiet Day for Associates, Oblates and Friends Discipleship in Mark: a Lenten path

Saturday, February 17, 2018

It is reported that on his way to Rome to be martyred, Ignatius said, ‘Now I am beginning to be a disciple.’ All of our Lenten self-improvement disciplines miss the point if they do not take into account the truth that the path of Jesus leads to a cross.

On this Lenten Quiet Day we will explore what discipleship looks like in the Gospel of Mark. Through a meditation on the last week of our Lord’s life, and aided by art, the testimony of other disciples, and the Eucharist, we shall consider the relationship between being a follower of Jesus Christ and martyrdom.

And we shall ask ourselves, ‘What does it mean to die with him?’

Led by Bishop Stephen Andrews, Principal of Wycliffe College.

  • Begins 9:30 am with a gathering for coffee; ends 4 pm.
  • Fee $30 ($25 for Associates and Oblates) if you bring a bag lunch. A hot meal is an additional $15.
  • Registration deadline: February 10, 2018

  • 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).
