Congregation of St. Saviour - Lenten Retreat

Congregation of St. Saviour - Lenten Retreat
The Way of the Cross
Mariandale Retreat Center - March 9-11, 2018

Facilitator: The Reverend Deacon Kent J. Curtis

Please join us for the annual Lenten Retreat for the Congregation of St. Saviour.  This year we will use a book entitled Meditations on The Way of the Cross as our guide.  This book was co-authored by Mother Teresa of Calcutta and Brother Roger, founder of an ecumenical Christian monastic order in Taizé, Saône-et-Loire, Burgundy, France.  In this retreat, we will use the book for reflection and as a meditation guide to aid us as we embark on our own journey on The Way of the Cross.  Additionally, we will use some of the most poignant and beautiful music written by the Taizé Community as a way to frame our time of shared reflection and lively discussion. 

Deacon Kent Curtis is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over twenty-seven years experience in the field of mental health, HIV/AIDS, aging, spirituality, and substance abuse. He was ordained to the vocational diaconate on November 2, 1996 at St. John’s Cathedral in Denver. The overall focus of his ordained ministry has been with seniors, persons living with HIV, grief and loss, and those experiencing homelessness or less than secure housing. His role at the Cathedral includes serving liturgically, preaching, consulting with Cathedral Community Cares, and offering educational outreach and opportunities such as forums on Mental Health, Death and Dying, and ministry to those living with HIV. We are honored to have him lead us in this our annual Lenten Retreat.

Mariandale Retreat Center is run by the Dominican Sisters of Hope, a Catholic Order.  Located near Ossining, New York, the retreat center is situated on 60 beautiful acres overlooking the Hudson.  The $215 fee covers a private room with shared bath, and six meals: dinner on Friday through lunch on Sunday.

We have reserved 15 single rooms.  Reservations are due February 16, including payment in full.  For additional information, please contact Marsha Ra.

The Communion of Saints: A Retreat during the Season of All-Saints

Join Canon Patrick Malloy as he considers the deeper meaning of the Communion of Saints. The Cathedral is filled with depictions of saints anyone would be proud to call family. On any given Sunday, the chairs, too, are full of saints. And if we let our minds wander across time and across the landscape, we will stumble upon all sorts of people we are bound to by baptism: some we would love to know, some we would avoid. This is the Communion of Saints: a mixed bag of people who are marked as Christ’s own forever. What is the Church’s vision of this “forever” we say we share? What is our hope, and how do we give expression to it today?

We have reserved 20 rooms at Mariandale Retreat Center right on the Hudson. It offers excellent meals prepared by a Culinary Institute trained chef and can accommodate most dietary needs. The retreat will begin on Friday, November 3 and conclude with lunch on Sunday, November 5.

Tuition is $210 and includes two nights and six meals. Check-in is no later than 8:00 p.m. We will coordinate arrivals and departures for those who will take the Metro North Train. Partial scholarships available for those who have never gone on retreat before. To register or for more information, contact Mother Mary Julia Jett mjett@stjohndivine.org

In their Own Words: Fr. Michael Spurlock & the movie All Angels

In 2008, the members of All Saints Church, a small Episcopal Church in Smyrna Tennessee, were contemplating shutting their doors and selling their church. That Easter a community of Karen refugees from Burma, now known as Myanmar, showed up at the church. Their arrival was the beginning of a dramatic resurrection in the life of All Saints. The Reverend Michael Spurlock, Associate for Pastoral Care at Saint Thomas Church Fifth Avenue in the Diocese of New York was the Vicar of All Saints at that time. He will be on hand to tell the remarkable story of what God did to save a church through the arrival of the Karen. This story is the subject of the recent Sony Pictures release, All Saints, and Michael Spurlock is co-author of the book, All Saints: The Surprising Story of How Refugees from Burma Brought Like to a Dying Church.
