Praying with the Holy Mother 

Tuesday, March 6 – Friday, March 9, 2018

Led by the Rev. Matthew Wright

This retreat will explore the Divine Feminine in the Jewish and Christian traditions, focusing on the figures of Wisdom (Hebrew, Hokmah; Greek, Sophia) and Mary, the Mother of Jesus. During our time together we’ll deepen our understanding of Mary’s place in the life of the early Church, throughout history, and the place she can have in our own lives today, both as Holy Mother and a face of Wisdom. Join us for a weekend of teaching, chanting, and silent meditation, while participating in the rhythms of a Benedictine monastery.

Rev. Matthew Wright is an Episcopal priest and retreat leader. He serves as priest-in-charge at St. Gregory’s Episcopal Church in Woodstock, NY and as a teacher for Northeast Wisdom (, a non-profit dedicated to the renewal of the Christian Wisdom tradition. Matthew and his wife, Yanick, live alongside the brothers of Holy Cross Monastery.
