Calling all college-aged New England Episcopalians

I e-mailed the following to the Dartmouth Episcopal campus ministry list a few days ago, but it's pertinent to all Episcopal college students (and friends!) from across the northeast:

Hey, everyone, Nathan '09 here. Hope your Advent break is a blessed one, and that you’re staying warm (or, if you’re a skier/snowboarder, cold). This is an early note to say: save the date! Provincial Gathering will be February 20-22, 2009.

ProvGat is the annual retreat for Episcopal college students, chaplains, and friends from across the church's Province One, ie, New England. As in years past, we will gather at the beautiful Barbara C. Harris Conference Center in southern New Hampshire for a wonderful weekend of wonder, worship, workshops, and snow (I couldn't think of a word for snow that starts with "w"). Our retreat leader will be Brother Timothy Solverson, SSJE, and one of the workshops will be led by yours truly. Liz and I are both on the planning committee, and we’d love to have a sizable Dartmouth contingent. If you think Edge retreats are fun, just wait until you try a ProvGat!

For further details, search Facebook for “ProvGat 2009” or visit http://www.ssje.org/ and http://www.bchcenter.org/. More information coming soon!

Wishing you a blessed Advent and (eventually) a merry Christmas,
Nathan Empsall ‘09
