Saturday, January 6, 9am-4pm

In His Divine Providence, God made provision for beginnings in our lives.  Birthdays, anniversaries, seasons, cycles – all examples of beginnings.  The month of January brings with it the opportunity to begin again.

Perhaps it was a year of triumphs and milestones.  Regardless of how the year played out, it is important not to move forward too quickly.  The whole of our experiences are part of this journey of life.

Join us for this annual retreat.  Take the opportunity to reflect on how God was at work in your life last year, and anticipate how He will be present to you in the coming year.  A gentle day of Reflection and Anticipation.  Short reflections and directed quiet activities will be given by the presenter.  The Abbey gardens and grounds provide the perfect setting for contemplation.  Rest, reflect, and anticipate, knowing that God, who was with you in the past year, will be with you in the coming year as well.
