Annual Retreat SSJE 2019

This past November found five of St. Andrew’s faithful on our annual retreat to the monastery of the Society of Saint John the Evangelist in Cambridge on the banks of the Charles River. This quiet retreat involves five (optional) daily services, substantial meals, prayerful surroundings, a warm and comfortable physical atmosphere, and the always welcoming Brothers. 

With private rooms and access to a wonderful library, kitchen and chapel, this is a retreat of 3-5 days that each person can use to accommodate their own spiritual needs: praying, meditating, sleeping, reading, walking, etc.   There is the lovely outdoor scene of rowing activity on the river and, if desired, some sight-seeing and window shopping in Harvard Square.  

The retreat is a peaceful respite from the everyday frantic pace of “real life” and a trip well worth considering.  All of us are repeat attendees, and hope that more folks from St. Andrew’s will join us in 2020.
