TahomaIn September the Monastery of St. Gertrude hosted the first ever “area circle” in the Puget Sound area. At the end of January we will be following up on our first gathering by hosting a day-long retreat to share what it means to live monastic values in everyday life.

Please join us for:

Finding God in Everyday Life: An Introduction to Benedictine Spirituality for Seekers

Presented by: Sr. Teresa Jackson of the Monastery of St. Gertrude and Oblates (lay members) of the Monastery from Puget Sound.

~ Explore the Benedictine values of silence, lectio (praying with Scripture) simplicity and service and how to incorporate them in your life
~ Share stories with other attendees, oblates and sisters
~ Learn more about the oblates of the Monastery of St. Gertrude
~ Consider participating in a four-week follow-up program, a “covenant group” of fellow participants who commit themselves to going deeper in living these Benedictine values in their lives.

January 30th, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with a light lunch served St. Jude’s Parish, 10526 166th Ave NE, Redmond, WA 98052

There is no charge for this program. It is a way for the Monastery to give something back to our generous supporters.
