Grace Church offers a number of retreats and other annual programs throughout the year, especially during the season of Lent.
Lent Monday Evening Program
Each Monday night in Lent, parishioners meet for worship, fellowship, and education as they prepare for the celebration of Easter. The program begins with a service of Holy Eucharist at 6:30 pm followed by a simple soup and sandwich supper at 7:15 am. A presentation by a guest speaker followed by discussion begins at 7:45 am and concludes by 8:30 pm.
Each year, Grace offers a retreat day for parishioners on one of the Saturdays of Lent. These days are organized around a yearly theme and include time for worship, prayer, reflection, and conversation.
Women of the parish gather for a special retreat each fall in October or November. These retreats provide a time for reflection and refreshment, as well as an opportunity to meet and build community with other members of the parish.
Society of St. John the Evangelist Retreat
Parishioners from Grace travel each year to Cambridge, Massachusetts to spend a long weekend in retreat with the monks of the Society of St. John the Evangelist (SSJE). This trip offers a beautiful opportunity step away from the distractions of everyday life for a time and seek God in prayer, worship, silence, and deep conversation with other members of the Grace Church community.
