Thin Places & Retreats

RETREATS at St. Paul’s

– Attend ours or plan your own

St. Paul’s invites your church or Christian group to plan your own retreat at Put-in-Bay. We will help you plan your retreat and offer you meeting space.

On Sundays, we invite churches from Northern Ohio to Pray-At-The Bay. Begin with our 1030 AM service, enjoy a picnic lunch and spend the day exploring the island. Contact St. Paul’s for details.

In the Celtic tradition such places that give us an opening into the magnificence and wonder of that Presence are called “Thin Places.” There is a Celtic saying that heaven and earth are only three feet apart, but in the thin places that distance is even smaller. A thin place is where the veil that separates heaven and earth is lifted and one is able to receive a glimpse of the glory of God.
