In Christian tradition, seasons of fasting always lead to
seasons of feasting.

This retreat will explore how Lenten practices can shape us to better see (and even love) the everyday contours that define our lives. We’ll consider what place things like yard work, child-rearing, cooking, and home-making have in our fasts and feasts. And how might renewed attentiveness to these daily realities reshape our loves and re-orient us towards resurrection?

Scholarships are available. To apply for a scholarship, first register for a retreat to secure a space. Then apply for a scholarship after paying the $100 deposit. In the event of a full scholarship, your deposit will be refunded.

Plan to arrive at Laity Lodge anytime after 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 28. The retreat will officially commence with a 6:00 p.m. reception at the Great Hall and will conclude Sunday, March 3, following an 11:00 a.m. brunch. Click here for directions and more info on how to prepare for your visit.
