  • Weekend Retreat: Listen with the Ear of Your Heart

    May 3, 2019
    Glastonbury Abbey, 16 Hull St, Hingham, MA 02043, USA

    LISTEN with the Ear of Your Heart 2.0
    Facilitator: Louise A. DeSantis Deutsch, MS, Obl. OSB
    Suggested Offering: $200 includes 2 nights' accommodation and meals. Advance registration required.*

    Listening with the ear of the heart moves us to informed action based on deep and simple practices such as prayer, discernment, and intentional living, wherever our daily lives lead. Listening brings us ultimately to union with our ground of being, our calling to stand before the face of God. It is no accident that St. Benedict made "listen" the first word of the Prologue to his Rule. Come away and share discussion, prayer, and our stories. Come away and LISTEN with the ear of your heart.

    Retreatants give high marks for this facilitator. Come experience a supportive and caring weekend with Louise.

  • Annual Anointing of Sick

    May 12, 2019  9:30 am - 10:30 am
    Glastonbury Abbey, 16 Hull St, Hingham, MA 02043, USA

    There is probably no sacrament more misunderstood than the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick. It likely goes back to the time when it was called Extreme Unction which was the Last Anointing.
    Moments of mental anguish or times of physical illness can be difficult to bear. Our loving God wants to be a part of our experience. He wants to share our lives with us, the bad and the good. The sense of God’s presence and support often comes in and through our Faith Community. In the case of an illness, aging, facing surgery or struggling with loss that support comes in the form of the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick. As the ritual clearly states, the focus is on life, health, and well-being. The Anointing of the Sick will be administered during the regular Sunday Liturgy on Sunday May 12, 2019
