Medieval Women Mystics

April 27-29, 2018  |  Cost: $185

Medieval Women Mystics … and a few men, too!
This retreat will take an historical and spiritual look at some of the most interesting mystics of the Middle Ages. Beginning with the Beguine communities, followed by Julian of Norwich, the great Hildegard of Bingen, Meister Eckhart, and concluding with briefer looks at a few others.

A communal penance service with individual reconciliation will be part of the weekend as well as the celebration of the Eucharist.
