COVID-19 PANDEMIC UPDATE
Guest House and Convent Closed and Retreats Cancelled
Cancelled retreats will be rescheduled at a later date

It is with continued heavy hearts that we let you all know that our Guest House and Convent remains closed to non-essential visitors until further notice and that all SSJD retreats up to the end of June are now cancelled. In addition, the Women at the Crossroads program in July has been cancelled.

If you have already registered for any of these retreats, the Guest House office will be in touch with you regarding your deposit.

Please continue to keep in your prayers all who are affected by this disease – the sick and dying, the health care workers, the self-isolating, their families, the house-bound who have no way to get food, the lonely and frightened, and the scientists and health care researchers seeking for ways to stop the virus.

With assurance of our prayers for you.
The Sisters of St. John the Divine

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.
