From Wednesday evening 24 April
Berget is a Christian community. They seek to promote spiritual deepening and the unity of the Church. The members of the community come from several different churches and denominations as do their retreat and course leaders.
Since its founding in 1962, Berget has been a meeting place offering recreation, knowledge and spiritual strength and renewal to everyone who visits. Their calling is the visible unity, friendship and fellowship within the Church as well as spiritual deepening.
With a wide ecumenical aspiration, they offer retreats, Christian meditation, courses, worship services, community and fellowship.
Berget consists of two houses; the House of St. David – focusing on retreats, silence, rest, worship services and bible meditations. In the House of Meditation courses are given in in contemplative meditation, as well as spiritual guidance, ethics and our cultural origins/roots.
They celebrate the Holy Eucharist every day and pray the liturgy of the hours throughout the the day. They pray, eat, work and share the whole life with their guests as an ecumenical community.
