Clergy Retreat


Clergy Retreat
February 8-10 | Arrowwood Lodge, Baxter

This year we will be welcoming the Rev. Canon Whitney Rice, Canon for Evangelism and Discipleship Development from the Diocese of Missouri. She will be drawing from her own ministry and experience as she focuses on how we, in a time of great challenge and decline, intentionally choose new life for ourselves and our faith communities, as we see that gift of new life offered to us in our theology and in the gift of scripture.

This is an important opportunity to enjoy the luxury of spending several days together, engaging in rest, prayer, and play. Because ordained ministry is fundamentally shared ministry and communal ministry, it is the Bishop’s expectation that all active priests and deacons will attend the clergy retreat each year. It is an important part of the life and work that clergy share together.

If you cannot attend for any reason, please be in touch with the Bishop at
