St. Andrew's Abbey Retreat

November 19, 2021 to November 21, 2021

1:00pm – 1:00pm

Come to the high desert for rest, renewal and fellowship. For over 30 years, members and friends of FLV have been retreating to St. Andrew’s Abbey, a Benedictine monastic community in Valyermo, CA. This year our retreat will be held from Friday, November 19 through Sunday, November 21, 2021.

Over the weekend, we order our time together around the monks’ prayer schedule so that those who wish may join them in the chanting of the Psalms. We will have some structured study and fellowship time together on Saturday morning and mid-afternoon and there is ample unstructured time to read, walk, pray, nap, and visit the Book & Fine Art Store. On Saturday night, we’ll screen a film and enjoy some wine and treats. On Sunday morning, we’ll close with our own special worship service beneath the aspen trees in Father Eleutherius’s garden.

The retreat is open to anyone in the FLV community. The cost for the weekend is $180 per person for a shared room (including six tasty meals). If you would like a private room, the cost is $230. 

For more information about the Abbey, visit their website at St. Andrew's Abbey.
