We hold several one or two-day spiritual retreats on campus during the year, often with guest retreat leaders. Retreats in previous years have included Christian Mysticism led by Fr. William Menninger, one of the monks who developed the meditative practice of Centering Prayer; and another on Contemplative Spirituality led by the Rev. Dr. Richard Peace, retired professor at Fuller Seminary.
Each spring the women, and all who identify as women, of St. A's are invited to spend a weekend at a spiritual retreat center where guest retreat-leaders guide them through a weekend of contemplation, relaxation and spiritual exploration.
Themes for retreat weekends in recent years have included: Reclaiming the Feminine Divine; The Living Water; Sabbath and for 2024, Into the Mess: Finding Christ in Hard Places, led by Debie Thomas.
Every few years, our families go to Camp Stevens Retreat Center in the mountains for a weekend of relaxation, fun and worship.
