Spiritual Enrichment Program

Spiritual Enrichment Program – 2020-2021

Every year — new topics on spiritual practices — Check back for all 2021!

We will meet online as long as COVID 19 restrictions are in place. 

Benedictine peace Center - programThis one-year Spiritual Enrichment Program is open to men and women who desire to deepen their relationship with God.   Program participants gather at the Benedictine Peace Center eight times from September through May.  In addition, each person will enjoy a three-day silent retreat scheduled at your convenience.

Each program year will address new topics of interest to women and men on the spiritual journey.  Sessions seek to bring a theological and spiritual perspective to a faith journey within the Christian tradition.   Previous participants may opt to continue and new participants may begin each September.

The Monthly Gathering

The monthly two-hour gathering will include prayer and reflective dialogue with staff and other program participants on the focus topic for the month.  The meetings are held from 9:30—11:30 a.m. on Saturday mornings.  The sessions are led by  Benedictine Peace Center staff with expertise in a particular topic. 

This year we will focus on the spiritual life, silence and solitude, mentoring younger generations, aging well, fruitful use of anger, the importance of work and vocation, the meaning of life and death – subjects of Parker Palmer’s book, On the Brink of Everything.

The book and the honest discussions have been great, as have been the teaching/facilitating.  I appreciate having a place like yours in our region, that recognizes the importance of the inner life.  Please keep doing what you’re doing, and being so open to people of other faith traditions.
