After 6 years of leading daily prayer online, The Trinity Mission is now offering quiet, prayer retreats centered around the daily offices and daily Eucharist in the Anglican tradition. Please contact Fr. Michael if you would like to register or receive more information.

Intro. to the Quiet Retreat
If you are fairly new to taking a quiet, prayer focused retreat, this is a great opportunity both to experience the practice and to have assistance debriefing your experience. It is truly a venture into a deep quietness – even meals are taken in silence. The day is scheduled around Morning Prayer, Holy Eucharist, Evening Prayer, and Compline. Additionally, there are one or two short sessions each day to discuss quiet prayer practices.

Agenda
All parts of the retreat are optional (it’s your retreat). The day is sparsely scheduled (see sample schedule above) in order to provide plenty of time to be quiet, to pray alone, and to enjoy the area around Lebh Shomea. We will meet daily to give some guidance as to how to have a quiet prayer retreat with each session building upon previous sessions.

The $300 payment is all inclusive. It will cover: lodging, meals from Monday supper through Thursday breakfast; snacks, tea, & coffee.

Registration
Contact Michael if you would like to register. Your place will be reserved with a $75 deposit. The deposit is non-refundable but may be transferred to someone else if you find that you cannot attend.
