YCV Clergy Lenten Retreat ~ April 4, Convent of SSJD
Click here to learn more and register for this year’s York-Credit Valley Clergy Lenten Retreat, led by the Rev. Canon Dr. Constance Joanna Gefvert, SSJD.
Quiet Day Theme: Images of Holy Week In Lectio Divina we pause from the busyness of our lives to listen “with the ear of our hearts” to the words of scripture. In Visio Divina we are invited to gaze “with the eye of our hearts” at the truth of God’s word in visual form. Sister Connie will draw on her love of scripture and art in leading participants to reflect anew on the journey of Holy Week both in words and in visual images.
This event is open to active clergy in York-Credit Valley and is funded through the YCV Area Council. Space is available for a maximum of 40 registrants.
Registration closes on March 14.
