Two-Way Prayer Workshop
Lent is right around the corner, and is a time for introspection and for deepening and enriching one’s relationship with God. We invite you to this workshop and invite you to take on this form of prayer as a Lenten discipline. Two-Way Prayer encourages us to listen for that still, small voice within, as we experience unconditional love along with practical daily guidance. Unlike Centering Prayer or meditation, which focus on silence, Two-Way Prayer encourages us to stay alert while writing down our thoughts in answer to our most heart-felt questions. This method was born out of the Oxford Group and early AA. It has helped countless individuals find recovery from life’s problems through a deepened, more personal relationship with God.
This workshop will include experiential learning and discussion of Two-Way Prayer’s potential benefits for anyone wanting to develop a more profound spiritual life. Clergy, therapists, and spiritual directors will also find this workshop helpful for parishioners and clients. Register online or email Rebecca Hall.

Lebh Shomea Silent Retreat
Date: March 10 – 12, 2017
Most of our lives are busy, hectic, and noisy. Whether we feel run down or want to prevent that feeling, Lebh Shomea can be an antidote for our souls. Run by a core community of progressive Catholic hermits, this place offers a gift to the world—an interruption in the routine of our daily lives that can allow God’s presence to be felt in new and different ways. Please contact Rebecca Hall with any questions.
Society of St. John the Evangelist
Each year St. David’s takes a small group of parishioners to this Episcopal Monastery in Boston, MA for a 3-4 day retreat. This “mostly silent” annual retreat is held in Cambridge, MA. The group spends time each day with one of the Brothers in prayer and discussion of a specific topic (to be determined by the Brother). For more information email Rebecca Hall.
