Lenten Retreat: Parables & Paintings

March 15 - March 16

$40 – $145

Chanco on the James is excited to announce this year’s Lenten Retreat, “Parables & Paintings.” Together, we will look at four different parables which Jesus taught and explore them through the lens of paintings done by James B. Janknegt. These paintings are meant to foster rich conversation, which will be done in both large and small group settings. This program will feature several different activities and are designed for ages 16+. We hope you’ll join us for this time of fellowship and reflection during the Lent Season.

Our retreat will be facilitated by Rev. Keith Emerson, Rector at St. Paul’s Suffolk. We are also thrilled to announce that Rev. Melody Perdue, Associate Rector at Eastern Shore Chapel, will lead our music and worship time.

Although it is not necessary, we recommend ordering Janknegt’s book Lenten Meditations, which features a beautifully printed full-color painting, meditation, and prayer for every day in Lent. Order Lenten Meditations from bcartfarm.com.

This retreat will cost $40 for one day only, $120 for a shared room and $145 for a single room. Ages 16+ (all attendees under 18 must attend with a parent/guardian)

Arrival: March 15th, 6-7pm

Departure: March 16th, 4pm
