Come and experience the beauty and diversity of the land and organic farm at Monocacy Manor. Learn about its history and the ministry inspired by the gifts of Creation. With plenty of time to enjoy and contemplatively explore the outdoors, we will learn more about continuity among nature, soil, and sustainable living/lifestyle. Informative daily presentations will include the topics of soil, native plants, and their relationship with bees and pollinators. We will then integrate these sharings into our presentations and reflections about the Holy Father's highly acclaimed encyclical 'On Care for Our Common Home' (Laudato Si`). Participants and presenters will discuss how their learnings and observations can be "carried forward" and incorporated in practical ways in their daily lives. Prayer and reflection are integrated throughout our retreat as we celebrate God's gift of creation and deepen our awareness of local and global concerns.
