Clergy Lenten Retreat (Invitation from Bishop Mary)

Dear Clergy,

 Once again it is time for our Annual Silent Lenten Retreat. I sincerely hope that you will all be able to attend and take advantage of this opportunity for rest and the spiritual exercises of silence and reflection. Because of the importance of this time of spiritual nourishment, the Diocese will cover the cost for basic room and board. I am very pleased that Bishop Victoria Matthews has agreed to join us and lead our retreat. 

 This year, at the closing Eucharist, in addition to renewing our ordination vows, we will bless the oils we use for anointing. Please plan to bring your own oil stocks, clean and ready to be refilled. As always, the Cathedral keeps a supply on hand throughout the year.

 I understand that some of you find silent retreats very difficult and, while I think that this is a discipline worth struggling with, I will accept your regrets so that others can fully enter into the exercise of mindfulness and prayer. 

 If you cannot take part in the retreat, you are invited to join us for the Eucharist and Renewal of Vows on Tuesday at 11am and to stay for lunch where silence is no longer required. 


Every blessing,
