St. James News and Events
We gather for a hearty breakfast and conversation about things that matter. This year, we are engaging in a study of the Gospel of Matthew.
How do you want to be cared for at the end of your life? Who do you want to make decisions for you, if you can't? What kind of medical treatment do you want to receive (or not)? How comfortable do you want to be? How do you want people to treat you? What do you want your loved ones to know? We will use the Five Wishes workbook to create a power of attorney for health care reflecting your wishes, and provide resources for funeral planning. Make these important decisions now, while they are still yours to make, and make the end of life easier for you and your loved ones by planning ahead.
The wisdom of Benedict's Rule needs to be rediscovered in every age, and this time is no different. The deep structure inherent in the Rule provides an orientation to the Divine while facing the division and fragmentation of the present. Participants experience a balance of worship, prayer, study, and rest in beautiful and sacred surroundings. The retreat includes daily conferences by Br. Bede Healey OSB, Cam., music and liturgy by Canon John Renke, and daily celebration of Eucharist by abbot, the Rev. David Caffrey.
Cost: $1,350 single / $1,100 double
