Our Easter falls on the same day as Bealltainn in 2016 -- May 1 -- offering a rare opportunity to celebrate both the Celtic Easter Triduum and Bealltainn together. We will enjoy the hospitality of Pendle Hill, an 85-year-old Quaker retreat center on 23 acres in suburban Philadelphia, accessible by train.
This largely silent retreat for Céile Dé caim members will begin at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 28, and conclude before noon on Sunday, May 1. Our time together will be shaped by rùn and paidirean and also by gathering daily to share what is arising for each of us out of the unfolding Easter story.
Rooms, most with shared bath, are shared with one other person. Single rooms are few and will be offered initially to those with medical conditions that are supported by having a single room. You may put your name on a waiting list for a single in case more become available.
A $100 deposit will hold your place. The balance will be due by March 14, the first day of Corgus, our Céile Dé Lent.
