FESTIVAL CHURCH. After an introductory
meditation which will be led by a member of the
church, the Great Silence will begin. There will be a
few brief readings, but otherwise the silence will not
be broken until Sunday mid-morning, when we will
gather for sharing and worship.
For Festival Church. Others welcome as space permits.‚Äč

Weekend retreats run Friday dinner through Sunday lunch. The silence begins Friday night after dinner when the leader opens the retreat and introduces the theme. The leader usually offers brief meditations with morning and evening prayers on Saturday. The silence ends late-morning Sunday with a time of sharing and worship, followed by lunch and departure.

The cost for weekend retreats is $210. To reserve a space, please send a $100 deposit with an application you can print from the application page, or pay on line by going to the application page and clicking on payment options.

Dinner on Friday at 7 pm is the first official gathering. You are welcome to arrive and settle in any time after 4 pm on Friday. The retreat will end by 2 pm on Sunday.  It is important that you come on a weekend when you can stay for the whole retreat.
