New 2020 Programs

St. Mary’s Sewanee is pleased to announce a full slate of retreats and workshops for the remainder of 2020, with a diverse groups of presenters and a variety of options for participants. Registration is open for all events.

Centering Prayer full-day retreats, based on the format of the multi-day retreats offered in the past at SMS, will be offered three times this fall. Led by the Rev. Tom Ward and Rebecca Paluzzi, these are all-day events that will include multiple periods of centering prayer, Morning and Evening Prayer, Lectio Divina, and time for rest and reflection.

Rabbi Rami Shapiro will return with a One River Wisdom Retreat; Gordon Peerman will offer a Mindfulness retreat; and Susan Packard will ask us to consider what Autumn can teach us this year. Other events include training in the Welcoming Prayer and the practice of Lectio Divina.
