What: Lenten Half-Day Retreat
Where: Holy Cross Monastery
1615 Route 9 W, West Park, NY 12493
Whos Organizing: Joy
The monastery is an awesome place to quiet and center yourself. We will gather in the chapel by 9 a.m. for Communion. After that, there is a plethora of options available to participants: drink tea and watch the ice float down the river (best view of the river I have seen), visit the library and read a book, pray in the chapel, hike on the grounds or walk the Labyrinth (hoping it’s not too snow covered). It’s the perfect way to start Lent! I plan on bringing a sandwich (baguette with mozzarella and tomato) and am happy to bring extra or you can bring your own lunch. I will leave shortly after lunch (1 p.m.) but people are welcomed to stay as long as they would like. No costs are associated with this retreat, although they do have an at-will donation for the tea.
