July 8 – 12

Join us this summer for a three-day Gregorian chant retreat, July 8-12 (Friday dinner through Tuesday breakfast), at the Community of Jesus in Orleans, MA. The retreat culminates on July 11 with the celebration of the Feast of St. Benedict in the Church of the Transfiguration. Surrounded by the beauty of summer on Cape Cod, we will learn to sing the chants associated with the feast, as well as study the history of St. Benedict and his influence on Gregorian chant and Western monasticism. Basics of Gregorian chant – Psalmody, Antiphons, Hymns, and the overall history of Gregorian chant will be included. Join us as we discover this ever-relevant form of conversation through sung prayer.

Highlights include:

  • Chant instruction for all experience levels
  • Singing Gregorian Chant in the Church of the Transfiguration where Liturgy of the Hours is sung
  • Attending the daily Divine Offices
  • Lovely meals and accommodations overlooking the Cape Cod Bay
  • Join us as we explore the riches of this glorious tradition.
