Dear Right Reverend, Venerable Father, Reverend Canons, Reverend Fathers, Ladies and Gentlemen:
The Diocese has scheduled the Lenten Retreat for Friday, March 10 and Saturday, March 11at St. Alban’s Pro-
Cathedral (4006 Hermitage Road, Richmond, VA). The theme of the retreat is “Stations of the Cross” and will
be led by both lay members and clergy of the Diocese. The retreat will begin on Friday evening at 6:00 pm
followed by the first session.
Enclosed is a schedule outlining the event, as well as a registration form, which can be copied as necessary for
all interested parties. We encourage all to attend this Diocesan function. In addition to the retreat, the
Executive Committee of the Diocese will meet at 2:00 pm at the parish.
The cost for the Lenten retreat is $15 per adult (children 18 years and younger are free of charge but must
register for headcount purposes) which includes the cost of a continental breakfast and lunch on Saturday.
Please make your check payable to Diocese of the Mid-Atlantic States, and send it, along with the registration
form, by March 1st to:
Mrs. Deborah Weaver

ATTN: Lenten Retreat
A room block of 20 rooms has been reserved at the Courtyard Marriott Hotel at 6400 West Broad Street,
Richmond, VA. The room rate is $196/night plus tax. We realize that the rate is quite expensive. However,
there is a sports tournament in the city during the same weekend and prices are raised due to the tournament.
Should you desire to make a room reservation you can call directly to the hotel at 1-800-321-2211.
You may also Book a Hotel Room using this link.
The deadline for making reservations is February 10, 2023. The diocese is not financially committed to any rooms at the Courtyard, so you are welcome to find accommodations at other locations, though due to the tournament there is a shortage.
If you have any questions, you may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone me at (703) 399-6965.
St. Alban’s is looking forward to hosting this retreat.
Yours in Christ,
Deborah S. Weaver
