The Commemoration of St. Joseph of Arimathea

Join us on this retreat work day as we pray and do the work of the church. It is ideal if attendees can attend the entire day, but you are also welcome to join us for part of the schedule if necessary. A variety of work tasks will be given, and we will nurture the practice of keeping silence together. Donations will be welcomed to cover the cost of lunch, but are not absolutely necessary.
