Spiritual Enrichment Program
Similar format as last year, with new topics on spiritual practices.
This 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, a presentation on the focus topic for the month and reflective dialogue with staff and other program participants. 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, each session will focus on a spiritual practice, inviting participants to experience it, experiment with it, and continue to use it if it feeds their souls.
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.
