WHAT TO EXPECT AT A DAYTIME RETREAT
Imagine a warm welcome and an invitation into a meeting space decorated to match the theme of the retreat with colorful paper products and beautiful folders. After a brief welcome, which introduces the facilitators and the outline of the day along with any housekeeping details, we move into a Chapel alive with candles, flowers, icons, and instrumental music playing in the background. When everyone is quieted we begin the Opening Prayer Service with readers designated from the assembled group. After prayer we return to the meeting room for the 1st talk and related table discussion. At noon we break for a delicious lunch served in the Small Hall. We return to the meeting room for the 2nd talk and related table discussion. Our day is completed with a return to the Chapel for the Closing Prayer Service.
