Have you ever wondered what it might be like to sing with a monastic choir? Perhaps you regularly sing in your parish choir, but have wondered what it might be like to delve into monastic chant. Join us for three days of retreat centered around the musical heritage of the monastic tradition. With a balance of theology and praxis, prayer and instruction, guests will learn about the riches of the chant repertory as they are prepared to join the Brothers, in choir, for a festive celebration of First Evensong of Sunday and for Compline. Come sing; come pray; and take with you the gift of a new song.

We ask that you request only one retreat per year to allow everyone the opportunity to share in our ministry. Thank you.
