Loving, Disciplined, & Free: A Retreat for Men: May 29-June 1, 2025

Location: Emery House in West Newbury
Thursday 5:00 pm – Sunday 2:00 pm, May 29-June 1, 2025
Leader: Br. Keith Nelson, Br. Lucas Hall, & Br. Jack Crowley

Our SSJE Rule of Life holds before us the hope of “attaining maturity as loving, disciplined, and free men.” What does a mature, non-patriarchal men’s spirituality look like at this moment in human history? How can our leadership, mentoring, learning, praying and loving – as men of God– become a more authentic expression of Christ’s own compassionate strength?

We’ll seek answers to these questions in scripture and in the rich traditions of monastic spirituality, in sacred images and archetypes, and in our own personal stories. Join us as we celebrate the diversity of our manhood, reconnect with our God, and renew our vision of God’s future.


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.

$425.00 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 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.
