Regional Weekend Retreat, April 22 - 24, 2011

The New York City Center of SRF is very pleased to announce this year’s regional retreat at The Garrison Institute, the same location where last year’s retreat was conducted. Monastics of SRF will lead this year’s retreat on the weekend of April 22 thru April 24.

The Garrison Institute is located 50 miles up the Hudson River from New York City and housed in a lovely, renovated facility that was once a Capuchin monastery and is now devoted to meditation groups. The meditation sanctuary is surrounded by quiet grounds with benches, a large gazebo and wooded trails with views of the Hudson.
