Solstice

An Advent Retreat for Young Adults

December 19-21, 2019

The Cathedral Domain

 

The fifth annual Solstice retreat will be held at on December 19-21, 2019 at the Cathedral Domain in Irvine, KY. All young adults aged 18-24 are invited to leave their exams, work schedules, and shopping lists at the foot of the Mountain and join friends old and new for a time of fellowship, reflection, and worship as we prepare for the coming of the Christ child. 

Solstice is neither summer camp nor Happening. It's a lightly-programed, self-directed retreat designed to provide young adults the opportunity to experience the sacred in the midst of the chaotic holiday season. Participants are invited to sleep late, join a yoga class, read a book, go for a hike, prepare a meal, attend a guided meditation, and gather with friends around a fire. This retreat is for you. 

The cost is $75 but participants are invited to pay what they can.

Solstice is sponsored by the diocesan Young Adult Commission and St. Augustine’s Chapel.

Take One Step

As we come to Harvest Sunday (Oct 20), we are offering a number of ways to think about and decide what to pledge to Trinity.  One way to think about it is to look at where you are in the current distribution of giving:

And then decide to take one step to the next level.  If only one giving unit at each level took a step from where they are now to the median of the next level it would mean an additional $10,000 in income next year for programming.  If we added one giving unit at each level, it would mean an additional $40,000.  One person taking one step can make such a big difference to our long term financial sustainability and therefore to what we can be together and in the larger community of Covington.  Please preayerfully consider being the one that takes one step next year.
