Saint Mary’s Vestry Retreat

By Leslie Derrick

IMG_0879_webSaint Mary’s Laguna Beach hosted the annual vestry retreat at the beautiful Mount Calvary Monastery in Santa Barbara California.

This is a beautiful location, with walking paths and gardens for prayer and meditation.  The rooms are clean, quiet and quaint.  The meals were wonderful and severed in a lovely dining hall.  Mount Calvary Monastery is a treasure in the hills of Santa Barbara.  Our vestry was well cared for and we came away from the retreat feeling renewed in spirit and strong in our walk with the Lord.  We were blessed to experience the weekend at Mount Calvary Monastery and we are looking forward to next retreat at Mount Calvary Monastery.
