Thy Kingdom Come

With Tim Oberholzer

November 11 - 13, 2022

Monastery of St. Gertrude Vision

Prayer awakens. Justice impels. Compassion acts.

Thy Kingdom Come

Spirit Center and the Monastery of St. Gertrude present four retreats based on the monastery’s vision statement. Each retreat explores one aspect of the vision. The retreats stand alone; participation in one does not require participation in the others.

Thy Kingdom Come belongs to the most well-known prayer in Christianity, the Our Father. Thy Kingdom Come summarizes the Monastery of St. Gertrude’s Vision Statement. But what does it mean?

We will come together in contemplation and conversation to explore Thy Kingdom Come. Scripture and the Rule of St. Benedict offer consideration points. Lived experience presents encounters and obstacles. Individually we will ponder. Together we will share. Thy Kingdom Come.

Come open and curious in heart, soul, mind, and body. Be prepared to create space for yourself, others, and the Other.


Feel free to bring your favorite Bible translation and/or a copy of the Rule of St. Benedict if you would like to explore beyond what will be provided in the retreat handouts.
