Our retreats are opportunities to take a break from our day-to-day lives to spend a day or two exploring a spiritual topic or learning a new skill. All of our retreats offer a spiritual component as well as opportunities for fellowship and sharing in a comfortable environment.
ONLINE - Journey through Holy Week Retreat Thursday, April 9; Friday, April 10; Saturday, April 11 10:00 am.-12:00 p.m. Donation: Free-will offering Facilitators: Kelly Lemens and Jenny Mitchell
The Triduum – Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter – are the summit of the Christian Lenten journey. These three days celebrate the Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ, with each day commemorating significant events leading up to Easter. Christians around the world are encouraged to spend time each day in prayer, meditating upon the sacrifice Jesus made for us. This year, though restricted and confined, we are called into prayerful community even more. As a way of being together in community and commemorating these special days, A Place To Be is offering an online 3-day prayer experience. Each session will be filled with prayer, Scripture, reflection and an opportunity to create an artistic expression of your meditation. While each session is designed to be experienced individually, taken together, the days become a continuous prayer experience leading up to Easter. We hope these prayer experiences deepen your experience of these three most holy days. Prayers and reflections led by Kelly Lemens, artistic expression led by Jenny Mitchell.
