PREACHED RETREATS

 

"Preached" retreats are more interactive and less "preachy" than this customary nomenclature suggests! Usually spanning a weekend (sometimes a few weekdays), these retreats are led by a "retreat master" who offers a series of "conferences" or talks following some kind of theme. You'll find our 2021 offerings below. The requested donation covers room, board, and conferences. To make reservations, click on the links below, or call 661 944-2178, or email retreats@valyermo.com.


Notice: Due to the global pandemic, the Abbey is currently closed to the public until further notice. In order to stay connected and continue providing you with our preached retreats, we have decided to offer our retreats online via Zoom! We will continue to offer these retreats to you online and will post any changes or updates on our website or via email.

We thank you for your support during these difficult times. God bless.
