There are times when we need space. . . space to breath, hear and respond, space for transformation and renewed clarity in our lives. Join us for all or part of our weekend Celtic prayer retreat on a wild piece of land on south Camano Island. On this spacious and undeveloped piece of land, we will set aside the busy clutter in our lives and greet a quiet space for prayer and renewal.

Following the Celtic Christian tradition, this retreat will incorporate the rhythms of work and rest, community and solitude, prayer and biblical study. Throughout the day, we will meditate on scripture and listen for the movement of the Spirit in our lives. Encounter God as we walk the Labyrinth and the Prayer Trail. Help us care for the land and prepare our outdoor sanctuary for worship. Spend time in community worship and sharing a pot-luck at lunch and BBQ dinner. There will be time for silent retreat and rest. The day will end with the Eucharist celebration and pot-luck BBQ. Truly, this will be a spiritual retreat to restore rhythm in our lives, rebuild our souls and renew our call out into the world.

Brief outline of the *weekend:

  • (Optional) Friday: Rhythm of work and get your hands dirty and try your arms at a bit of manual labor as we prepare for the retreat time ahead.
  • Saturday Day: A full day of meditation and study and ending with Eucharist and potluck BBQ (bring your own grilling item and a salad or dessert to share)
  • (Optional) Sunday: Morning worship in our outdoor sanctuary.

*Spending the weekend: please keep in mind that the land is completely undeveloped. If you are staying one or more nights, bring a tent! We will have port-o-pottys there. We also advise that you bring drinking water.
