|St. John's Episcopal Church|
Not only will this retreat experience enrich me during Advent, but it is also preparation for a pilgrimage adventure that I will embark on late next summer. I will travel to the west coast of Ireland and join a handful of other kindred spirits in exploring early Celtic Christianity. Led by Christine and her husband, John, our group will spend 9 days steeped in such monastic themes as hospitality, service, Sabbath and conversion while visiting Celtic sites in Connemara, the Burren and the Aran Islands. I can hardly wait!
