The NWPA Clergy Retreat will be held February 23-25 at Olmsted Manor.
By popular request, Sandra Smith, an accredited Enneagram teacher, will return to lead the retreat, titled “Spiritual Dimensions of the Enneagram.”
Prior to the retreat, clergy should read the introduction, the first chapter, the chapter on your Enneagram type, and the chapter on the inner soul child from “The Spiritual Dimension of the Enneagram” by Sandra Maitri.
When registering, please note if you have dietary restrictions. If you do not sign up for specialized meals, you will not be able to take one at the retreat. At the last retreat, we had an issue with people taking specialized meals that they did not sign up for, which resulted in people who had signed up not getting the appropriate food. Olmsted Manor fills our catering order and does not have additional options available on the spot.
Do you feel you are being called to a deeper ministry? Do you feel that you might be called to ordained ministry?
If so, please consider attending our Explorer’s Day on February 29, 2020, at St. Luke’s, Jamestown. The program will be offered at no cost and will run from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. (lunch will be provided).
Explorer’s Day serves as a day of exploration into ministry and as the entry point to the ordination process. During this day-long program we will take a look at the different callings and roles of three of the orders in the church: lay, deacon, and priest. We will do this through theological reflections using the Book of Common Prayer, studying scriptures that show different ways we may be called to ministry, and hearing from representatives of each of the three orders. We will also explain the details of our respective ordination processes.
We do require that the priest from the attendee’s congregation accompany him or her, as the clergy will be walking alongside them during this exploration of call. Also, though you do not have to enter the ordination process after attending this event, attendance at this event is required to enter the ordination process.
