Urban Abbey meeting 9/27

The Urban Abbey will meet in community for reflection, fellowship, study, prayer and a chapter meeting on Saturday, September 27, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM at Virginia Theological Seminary. This is a particularly important meeting where our Abbess will announce the new Listening Groups as well as give us an opportunity to review the reasons and procedures for Listening Groups. Because we have several important decisions facing the Abbey, Raima wishes to gather us in a formal chapter meeting for discussion and decision.

Gibbs Room in Aspinwall Hall at Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria provides a quiet setting and good accommodations for our time apart. If you have a problem getting a ride, e-mail Ron Crocker and he will help you.

The cost for the day including coffee break and lunch is $20 per person. You may give Ron Crocker cash or a check. Make the check payable to St. George’s Church. As in the past, members of the abbey have brought light snacks to share at the beginning of the day. I encourage you to do that.

Dress comfortably; bring writing materials and anticipation for being together in community. We need to prepare material and tell the kitchen how many people will attend so please let me know whether or not you will attend by tomorrow, September 19.
