"Ancient Wisdom for Modern Living"

Convent front porch, currently decked out for Memorial Day

We're getting ready for the retreat weekend next month. I've just been given the topic of lectio divina and assigned Sunday's Eucharist - preaching and celebrating - so it's time to move into gear. I suspect the others already have a clear idea of what they're doing, but I'll catch up. I'm looking forward to hearing what the other sisters have to say. 

Join the Sisters of St. Margaret for a weekend retreat:

“Ancient Wisdom for Modern Living: Insights from the Rule of St. Benedict.”

This residential retreat, June 12 to 14, 2015, at our convent in Duxbury, offers an exploration of some key aspects of Benedictine spirituality. Participants should plan to arrive after 2 pm Friday and depart before 3 pm on Sunday. The program begins with Evening Prayer at 5 pm on Friday. Complete schedule available upon registration.

Accommodations: private rooms; shared bath. Cost: $200 which includes room and board, as well as program materials. To register, send a check for $100. When registering please let us know if there are dietary or mobility restrictions. Also please indicate your expected time of arrival.
