Prayerful Stitches

Led By: Br. Aidan Owen

Fee: $400 (Deposit: $100)

October 18- October 21, 2018

Join us for our annual stitching retreat! This year’s theme is “contemplative ecology.” We’ll be exploring how our crafting leads us deeper into a spirituality that is grounded in an experience of ourselves as creatures of the earth. Retreat talks will offer a framework of ecologically-grounded, contemplative Christian spirituality as well as time for group sharing. There will also be plenty of time for socializing with fellow stitchers and for enjoying the beauty of the Hudson Valley in the fall. And, of course, we’ll spend our Saturday at the New York Sheep and Wool Festival (better known in the knitting world as “Rhinebeck”). Stitching during retreat talks is encouraged. Bring your needles or hooks, yarn, and an open heart. All meals and accommodations are included in the cost of the retreat, as is the festival entrance fee, and transportation to the festival.
