BEAVERTON — The pandemic complicated retreat ministry, but Our Lady of Peace in Beaverton is trying to carry on in 2021. For many retreats on the calendar for the first half of the year, participants can join via Zoom.

Last week saw Archbishop Alexander Sample lead a vocation discernment retreat at the venerable Beaverton retreat house.

On Feb. 17, Archbishop John Vlazny, former leader of the archdiocese, leads an Ash Wednesday retreat with the theme “We are the Lord’s.”

A women’s silent retreat on divine mercy is set for March 26-28 led by Michaelite Father Peter Prusakiewicz. April 30-May 2 is the men’s turn, led by Dominican Father Augustine Hilander.

May 14-16 is time for a Catholic Engaged Encounter and May 20-23 sees the Fort Vancouver Knitters Guild gather for a retreat.

The Franciscan Sisters have their own eight-day silent retreat June 15-23, followed by another Engaged Encounter June 25-27.

For more information, or to schedule a retreat for a group, email sisters@olpretreat.org or call 503-649-7127.
