Location: The Monastery in Cambridge

Leaders: Brs. Jim Woodrum

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 would 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 on Sunday and for Compline. Come sing, come pray, and take with you the gift of a new song.


We strive to make retreat time available to all who seek it, and so the suggested fees cover only a portion of the expenses for making our facilities available. As such, we are always grateful for any additional donations in support of our retreat ministry.

$420.00 per person for this program retreat
$225.00 for students/young adults

Suggested fees can be reduced in cases of financial hardship.

Reservations are confirmed only upon receipt of a non-refundable deposit equal to 50% of your total fee.

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