Winter Sabbath Retreat

Fri., January 20th, 20236:00pm

*This not an MOCRC event, however because of its openness to the public and our relationship with the leader, we are promoting it within our network*

YOU are invited to begin the new year finding rest, renewal, and delight in the midst of the fullness of your life on the Winter Sabbath Retreat. The Sabbath Retreat will be a time of slowing and holding the sacred gift of your life with God. We will be retreating at the beautiful Mount Olivet Retreat Center located in Farmington, MN. There are miles of walking trails, cross country skiing and snowshoe trails, cozy rooms, great food, pool, sauna, and whirlpool. You will be invited to intimate times connecting with God through silence, guided reflection, listening, creative prayer, holy yoga, and play. We will begin our retreat with dinner at 6pm on Friday evening and close our retreat time with lunch on Sunday. You are welcome to come early on Friday and have a little more time of rest. This retreat is for women and men, singles, couples, old and young, anyone who is longing for a holy pause and an extended time to quiet the mind and hear the One speaking to your heart and soul.
