Welcome to the Society of Saint John the Evangelist

Wisdom from the Desert: May 29-31, 2020

Location: The Monastery in Cambridge
Friday 5:00 pm – Sunday 2:00 pm, May 29-31, 2020
Leader: Br. David Vryhof, SSJE

Monasticism and monastic spirituality have their roots in the deserts of Egypt, Syria and Palestine, where, in the fourth century, an intensive experiment in Christian living began.  What wisdom might the early Desert Fathers and Mothers have to impart to us today? What can they teach us that might help us live well in the present age?


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.

$280.00 per person for this program retreat
$150.00 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.
