Update on 2014 Lenten Retreat


UPDATE 2/12/14:  PLEASE NOTE:  All spaces have been filled for this retreat, but please let us know if you are interested in being added to the waiting list that we are compiling and will use if any current registrants are unable to attend.


The annual Immanuel Church-on-the-Hill Lenten retreat will be led by the Rev. Randy Alexander April 4-6, 2014 at Holy Cross Abbey in the foothills of the Shenandoah Mountains by the Shenandoah River on a 1200 acre farm near Berryville, Virginia. 

The Cistercian monks of Holy Cross Abbey have been praying on the Berryville property since 1950; retreat participants will benefit from this location steeped in prayer as they explore the retreat theme.  Cistercians observe silence at all times to aid reflection, prayer, and listending to God.  During the retreat, silence will be observed except in the program sessions.  For more information about Holy Cross Abbey, consult the website http://www.virginiatrappists.org/.

The retreat will begin on Friday afternoon, April 4, shortly before the evening meal and will end after the noon meal on Sunday, April 6. The $300.00 registration fee includes all materials, comfortable accommodations, individual rooms each with a bathroom, and all meals.

Look for more information about the retreat in the next Almond Tree newsletter.

Two scholarshps given in memory of Charles Willis are available; please contact the rector for scholarship assistance.

Registration is limited to 15 persons; please reserve your space now using the form in the Almond Tree (click here).

Congratulations To New Vestry
