Annual Bishop’s Fall Clergy Retreat  October 17 – 19, 2016

“Tapping the Wellspring”

The retreat was led by Br. Curtis Almquist and Br. Luke Ditewig from the Society of St. John the Evangelist (SSJE). Br. Curtis and Br. Luke live at SSJE’s rural monastery, Emery House, in West Newbury, Mass. Both are known to many in this Diocese and are active as retreat leaders and spiritual directors.  For information about the SSJE Brothers’ life and ministry, please visit www.SSJE.org.

Jesus promises us a spring of living water “gushing up” within us.  Our time together in October will offer reflection on how to tap this deep well, and practices that invite the peace, strength, courage, and clarity we need in our ministry of leadership during these very challenging and inviting times.
