Contemplative Easter Weekend Retreat
St. Columba’s, Inverness
Holy Thursday, April 13th – Easter Sunday, April 16th
St. Columba’s vicar, Fr. Vincent Pizzuto, is also the founder and vicar of New Skellig, a contemplative worship community whom he brought to the Episcopal Church and our Diocese in 2011. He continues leading that thriving organization while serving part-time for St. Columba’s (concomitant with teaching full-time as a professor of Theology at University of San Francisco.)
This Easter he holds a contemplative retreat in celebration of Easter Weekend (The Triddum) at St Columba’s beginning the evening of Maundy Thursday (April 13) through the celebration of Easter on April 16th.
The evening will begin with a light supper at 5:00pm followed by a celebration of the Holy Thursday liturgy at 7:00pm. Retreatants are welcome to attend all of the liturgies for Good Friday, the Great Vigil on Holy Saturday and our closing Liturgy at 10:00am, Easter Sunday morning. As long as space remains available, accommodation is offered in the Retreat House, however commuter participation is also offered.
Throughout the weekend there will be time for silent reflection, communal faith sharing, meditation, trail hikes, and beach visits in the beautiful environs of Point Reyes National Seashore.
If you would like to join us please register early. Details about the retreat will be sent to registered retreatants by mid-March.
The cost of the weekend including room & board and retreat supplies is $230.00. Most rooms are shared occupancy. To hold a place in the retreat house we will require a $50.00 non-refundable deposit per person by March 1, 2017
Commuters are welcome to attend the weekend for a reduced fee of $100.00.
All liturgical services are open to the public.
We are already booking space so please plan to lease register early. Please contact Fr. Pizzuto to ensure spaces are still available firstname.lastname@example.org.
