St. Alban´s Episcopal Church is organizing a Young Adults Retreat on June 23-25, 2023, and they are inviting other young adults in our diocese to join them.
The spiritual retreat for those in their 20s/30s group will provide a sacred time for fellowship, spiritual growth, and reflection. The retreat will be led by poet, scholar, lay leader, and educator Kathleen H. Staudt, and she will use as a resource her book Shaping a Faithful Life: Discernment and Discipleship for Young Adults. Please consider buying your own copy, as you may use it during the event.
Dates: June 23rd – 25th. The retreat begins with dinner Friday night, there will be various sessions and activities throughout Saturday and then concludes Sunday after lunch.
Topic of the retreat: Discernment and discipleship.
Location: Claggett Retreat Center in Adamstown, MD (about an hour’s drive from DC).
Rooms: 2 people to a room
Meals are included! Meals are provided by the retreat center and are included in the overall cost. Please send me an email if you have dietary requests.
Price: St. Alban´s is paying the full amount of the retreat facilitator´s fees, and they are asking participants to pay for the 2 nights/ 3 days of lodging and food, which is $226 per person. Those interested need to pay a $50 per person deposit before June 1 to secure their spot, and the rest of the payment no later than June 12. The diocese is willing to offer some scholarships to cover the expenses (with the exception of the $50 deposit) to those interested in participating.
Please, email the Rev. Yoimel Gonzalez Hernandez for questions or if you are interested in attending. Also, if you and your spouse both register, please email Yoimel with that information so that he can keep track of spouses rooming together.
