Join St. Martin's for a weekend of meditative repose with pastoral support provided by Associate Rector the Rev. Barbara Ballenger,
Come enjoy a spiritual respite on the banks of the Hudson River in this mostly silent retreat. Find renewal in the soothing daily cycle of Benedictine Prayer in the lovely chapel. Sit, read, rest, reflect in the lovely spaces of the monastery. Schedule time with a Brother of the order for Spiritual Direction or a conversation with the Rev. Ballenger. Did we mention that the food is fabulous?!
