On his path to the Garden of Gethsemane, on the night of his arrest, Jesus left his disciples—his friends—with lasting words of wisdom and promise: “You will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you…Abide in me as I abide in you.” (John 14:20 and 15:4)
During these holy days, we will listen deeply to Christ’s wisdom as we follow the path of centering prayer, a prayer that leads us to a quiet place of abiding with Christ and then sends us out with a greater compassion for all creation. Readings, music, and sacred symbols will inspire our reflections.
The retreat will be led by the Rev. Dr. Pauline Head, retired priest of the Diocese of Niagara and Associate of SSJD. Arrivals and registration 2:00-4:00 pm Wednesday; ends after dinner Sunday. Special Holy Week fee $360; deposit $50. (Registration deadline: April 1, 2020)

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).
