Turn your knitting time into a spiritual practice!

Contemplative Knitting Retreat - February 3-5, 2023
Discover how to turn your knitting time into a spiritual practice.  Whether you are an experienced knitter or a novice, you can learn how to start and sustain a daily prayer practice using your knitting.  Bring your friends and enjoy the historical setting of The Grail located at Cornwall on the Hudson.  The Grail is an organization founded by women and steeped in spiritual tradition that honors environmental sustainability, women and the arts, social transformation, and global solidarity.  This historic house is now home to Rural and Migrant Ministry, an organization dedicated to justice for Farmworkers.
Retreat Leader:  Julie Cicora is an Episcopal priest, mission developer and avid knitter.  She has been knitting for more than fifty years and praying for 30!  Her most recent book "Contemplative Knitting" outlines how to use knitting to create a sustainable daily prayer practice.  You can find Julie on Ravelry and Instagram as JulieCicora.
