Negotiating Our Dual Citizenship: The Spirituality of Mark’s Gospel: October 31-November 3, 2024

Location: The Monastery in Cambridge
Thursday 5:00 pm – Sunday 2:00 pm, October 31- November 3, 2024
Leader: Br. David Vryhof

Jesus lived in a matrix of vying political powers – religious factions and the oppressing occupation of the Roman Empire. Jesus was very politically savvy when he proclaimed, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near.” How do we negotiate our “dual citizenship” in our own day as we live amidst such competing, sometimes acrimonious political rivalries? We will draw upon the Gospel of Mark and how it informs and inspires us to live hopefully, faithfully, and powerfully in our own day.

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.

$465.00 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.
