In Silence with Thomas Merton
January 19, 2024 @ 2:00 pm - January 21, 2024 @ 1:30 pm$350
Introducing a new retreat series with Br. Ephrem Arcement, OHC at Holy Cross Monastery: called “In Silence…”
The hope for each of these retreats is to explore the life and spirituality of a given mystic of the Christian tradition and to begin learning how to put their wisdom into practice. Components to the retreat will be conferences on a given mystic, group sharing and Q&A, and contemplative prayer, along with opportunities for prayer and Eucharist with the monastic community.
The inaugural In Silence… retreat will explore the life and spirituality of the Cistercian monk Thomas Merton. Thomas Merton is widely regarded as one of the foremost spiritual writers of the twentieth century whose influence extends well beyond the Cistercian monasticism or the Roman Catholicism which he called home. Join Br. Ephrem Arcement, OHC in encountering this profound figure who did so much to shape the contours of the contemplative and prophetic traditions in the church today.
