Bobbin lacemaking takes us back to the earliest history of the Sisters of St. Joseph in 17th century France. And yet as a modern contemplative practice, it creates in us heart-space where our communion with God  may be woven into our lives, as surely as the design of threads and spaces unfolds at our fingertips. CLICK HERE for details on our next offering!


Enrich your life by journaling! It’s not just a diary to record daily events; you learn to trust what you write, clarifying how you feel and what you think. It’s a simple way to grow personally and spiritually. Attend our next journaling workshop to get started or to expand on what you already do. CLICK HERE for details.


‘Have retreat, will travel’

Sister Janet Lander can bring many of our retreats to you — at retirement or retreat centers, motherhouses or other facilities of religious congregations. These weeklong guided retreats generally include morning and evening prayer, creative or contemplative activities and a daily reflection guide. Each of these programs can also be offered as an “Elder Retreat,” a three-day format specifically designed for assisted care and similar facilities. To learn more, CLICK HERE.

Sabbaticals & personal retreats

OR, if you want information on personal directed retreats or just a sabbatical that provides a respite in an otherwise hectic life, CLICK HERE to learn more about what we can offer.
