Friends are once again invited to enjoy the peace and beauty of a weekend retreat at Mariawald Renewal Center just outside of Reading, PA, from June 15 to 17 this year. Private rooms include private baths, balconies overlooking the property, and comfy accommodations for reading and writing. The surrounding property and woods with trails provide plenty of space for walking or just enjoying nature. The retreat will again be led by Nancy Bieber, who will invite and guide us into the silence and space for spiritual renewal. The retreat is mostly held in silence.
We will begin with dinner on Friday evening and close in time to return to Lancaster MM for meeting for worship. Meals are provided by the Center, but there are kitchenettes available if you prefer to bring your own food. The cost is $150 per person. Because this is a project of Worship and Ministry, scholarships are available.
Registration forms are available on the table in the gathering room of the Meetinghouse or you can contact Jane Keller by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
