Dear Sisters and Brothers,
Your Abbot Bro. Julian and the Council of BSOW invite you with excitement to our retreat on Fisherman’s Island, off Boothbay Harbor Maine, this July 26-30, 2021. The current owners of the island, George and Susan Craig, have most graciously welcomed us and will provide boat transportation and will join us for part of the day Wednesday, as will members of John Henry Wilson’s family.
Some of us registered last year and some have asked New England Treasurer Bro David Andrews to hold our retreat fees. Those retained fees will used for this year’s fee.
ALL people desiring to retreat are required to register and complete the attached registration and payment forms
and snail Mail your forms and check to
Bro David Andrews, 281 Washington St., Middlebury, VT 05753
We know of 20 people who have expressed desire to retreat
and there is a limit of 21 retreatants due to space for the entire retreat.
Space will be available first come first served. So send your registration and payments today!
Cost will be $150. For all persons who may find that limiting, please contact Bro Julian to claim the scholarship you need. firstname.lastname@example.org
Some of us can come on retreat for only a day. Please register for the one day (Wednesday July 28th) with the attached registration form. You may use the payment form for your dues if you have some. There is no limit on the number of brothers and sisters for that Wednesday, and no charge for the day.
We send special encouragement to all novices to join us for the entire retreat so you can be consecrated, if that is your desire, on the island.
What about Covid 19? We will be carefully monitoring the guidance of the CDC and will follow all recommendations, which might mean postponing the retreat again or requiring a test or vaccine before coming to the retreat. We will stay in touch and refund payments or hold them at your request if there is a postponement. So register today with no fear if there is a need to postpone. We will act safely.
Meanwhile we live by hope, looking forward to celebrating with you in July!
