Monday, June 19 to Sunday, June 25
The Bishop's Ranch, 5297 Westside Road, Healdsburg


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
