Our Spring Wilderness Retreat will be led by Rev. Steve Blackmer, MAR 2012, (Church of the Woods. NH) and Prof. Janet Ruffing at Incarnation Center, Ivoryton, CT. We will open ourselves to the experience of God in this beautiful natural environment and enjoy considerable time in silence together and alone. More details will follow closer to the retreat, but we need an expression of interest earlier than usual in the semester because of the way our spring break falls in relationship to the retreat. Accommodations will be in All Angels, more rustic than in 2015 with two or three to a room, linens and bedding provided. The cost to YDS students is $80. per person, with the Annand Program covering the other half of the room and board fee and our other expenses. We leave school around 4:00 pm, and begin with supper Friday evening and end with a liturgy after breakfast on Sunday morning. (Palm Sunday, this year) Provision will be made for those who have ministry obligations on Sunday morning. Please express your interest in participating to Annand Student Assistant, Dante Tavolaro: firstname.lastname@example.org See Prof. Ruffing if you have questions.
