This is a nine-month program of quiet days (9 am to 4 pm) at The Hermitage (Three Rivers, Michigan) with facilitated group spiritual direction for clergy persons. The purpose is for clergy to experience a time apart from the details of the church office and to reconnect with God. The group spiritual direction is a time of contemplative prayer and listening to one another.
The renewal days meet on the following Thursdays:
*September 8 *October 13 *November 3
*December 1 *January 5 *February 2
*March 1 *May 3 *June 7
The cost for the 9 sessions is $600 (half can be paid in 2011 and the other half in 2012). This includes a private room, lunch and the facilitated group direction.
Interested clergy should register by August 15. Overnight accommodation may be available for an additional fee.
