Contemplative special events at Saint James

In addition to our parish-wide day retreats, Saint James also offers contemplative events for the community. Below are just a few we’ve hosted in the recent past.

A Quiet Advent Day with
Meister Eckhart

December 6, 2019, 10 AM – 4 PM
Led by Glenn Mitchell, Director of Oasis Ministries in Camp Hill and spiritual director Kimberlee Peifer
Saint James Episcopal Church and Oasis Ministries celebrated the life of Meister Eckhart, a late 13th to early 14th-century German theologian, philosopher, inspiring preacher and mystic.

The day was spent exploring the inspiring life and teachings of Eckhart with time set aside to consider his words in the context of our own lives. The day concluded with a mass including themes from Eckhart’s life and teaching.
