The season of Lent  is a time of reflection as we prepare for Easter and the journey with Christ from crucifixion to resurrection.  Whether clergy or laity, we invite you to slow down and begin this upcoming lenten season on a Taize retreat at the Ridge. Music, silence, and scripture will create the framework for you to listen for God and to prepare your heart for Easter.  During the silence, there will be time to reflect, journal, and create, with coloring pages, mandalas, and origami books to capture your reflections on the day.  There will be time to explore the beautiful grounds of Rolling Ridge, to walk the labyrinth, and to sit by Lake Cochichewick.  There will always be much too much to do on your list.  Lent marks a good time to go on retreat, to let it go, to fast from the busy-ness and to be present with the Creator of the world who sent Jesus to be our light and hope.

Come for the overnight retreat for only $125 per person.  Includes Dinner, Breakfast, and Lunch. 


Come for just the day on Monday, March 11, 2019 from 9:30am-3:30pm for a Lenten Quiet Day, Day Apart Retreat for only $68
