Annual Fall Clergy Retreat October 12-14, 2009

“The Diocese as Spirituality & the Spirituality of Your Leadership”

We could not be more blessed to have the leadership of both Br. Curtis Almquist (Superior) and Br. Geoffry Tristram from the Society of Saint John the Evangelist (SSJE).  Many of you know that it is unusual for the SSJE House to send two of its most experienced retreat leaders to the same event.  The Diocese of Virginia is profoundly grateful that both Br. Geoffery and Br. Curtis will be with us and are certainly honored by their availability for our retreat.

Br. Curtis was our speaker at the October 2007 Fall Retreat.  The recordings from that retreat our found here.
