The Faith of Poets [in silence for Lent]

Led By: Br. John Forbis, OHC
Suggested Donation: $365

Tuesday, 25 February – Friday, 28 February 2020

Note: the Monastic Guesthouse will be observing silence for all of Lent this year.

How do poets communicate their faith? What do they say about it? Do they have anything to offer us on our own meandering journeys to God? Through an in-depth study and use of lectio-divina, we will experience poems that surprise, delight and reflect upon the presence and action of God in our lives.


Br. John Forbis, OHC is an award-winning poet published in the US, the UK, and South Africa. He also teaches creative writing and poetry in workshops here at the Monastery and in the area. His work with faith and poetry has been of great interest to him since he sees his monastic life as poetic and his poetic life as monastic. For him, they go hand-in-glove.
