There are excellent opportunities open for retreats at Holy Cross Abbey. You may be a graduate in between finishing your degree and first job; perhaps between jobs and needing to take stock; or even taking some vacation time. Time out with God in a beautiful setting could the best way to use that time.
In February, we have good availability for the weekdays (Monday through Friday) of 2-6 February and 9-13 February. A very appropriate time is the beginning of Lent, the week of 16 through 20 February and the first Full week of Lent, 23 though 27 February.
In March, the first week, the Second Week of Lent, 2 through 6 March has many openings and the prospect of a full moon illuminating the Shenandoah Valley. the Weekdays, 16 through 20 March would take you through the Spring Equinox.
For those of you who look forward to Holy Week at the Abbey, there are only four rooms still available, so call now to insure your place for the Triduum liturgies.
There are still openings for the Easter Octave, 6 through 10 April and the next three weeks, 13 through 17 April, 20 through 24 April and 27 April through 1 May. Those are all Monday through Friday openings (weekends go quickly). If you’ve never seen the Valley awakening to the beauties of Spring–and how that enhances your retreat experience–this is a wonderful possibility.
