Praying with the Psalms: May 9-11, 2025

Location: The Monastery in Cambridge
Friday 5:00 pm – Sunday 2:00 pm, May 9-11, 2025
Leader: Brs. Jamie Nelson and Jonathan Maury

For over 3,000 years, God’s people have prayed with the anthology of poetry we know as the book of Psalms. The gospels recount Jesus quoting from the psalms many times. From their earliest origins, monastic communities have prayed the psalms as “the heart of the Daily Office,” as SSJE’s Rule states. Through reading, listening, chanting, and creative practice, we will deepen our relationship with the psalms as a pathway of prayer.

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.

$310.00 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 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.
