Monastic Insights on Being as Prayer
Brothers Randy and Josep from the Holy Cross Monastery in West Park, NY will lead a retreat for the students and their friends of Progressive Protestant ministries at Amherst College and Williams College.
The brothers will lead discussions and share about college students in an age of COVID 19 can learn from monasticism, a spiritual way of life that incorporates contemplative practices and community, some of which is lived in isolation.
The brothers will lead 90 minute discussions, followed by off-line time for reflection as well as on-line community building time. (You will not be on Zoom the entire time!)
In addition to the discussions and off-line reflection, the Holy Cross Monastery liturgy will be live-streamed on our Facebook page on Friday evening and Saturday: Vespers 5:00pm, Compline 8:00pm, Matins 7:00am, Diurnum 12 Noon, Vespers 5:00pm.
All are welcome, regardless of faith tradition however the retreat will follow the contemplative practices of the Anglican Tradition (more specifically, we’re Episcopalians (Anna and I), all are welcome, (we really mean it!) and you are invited to participate and explore our spiritual practices as you feel comfortable…and we love to learn about yours!).
