More than ever I feel your friendship and support and look forward to communion together in the Body of Christ, because whenever you sit down to prayer, you’re in communion and union with everyone else, past or even future people who haven’t even been born yet.

Father Thomas Keating


As a non-profit spiritual community, Contemplative Outreach of Maryland and Washington (COMW) relies on financial support from participants to allow us to continue to operate.

Our income comes from coordinating retreats, selling books on spiritual topics at our events, conducting workshops, speaker series, special events and retreats and through financial gifts from our donors. COMW expenses include, website maintenance, small stipends for workshop and program presentations and provide partial scholarships to our events for those who ask.

Suggested program donation $25. Minimum donation $15.
COMW welcomes additional donations at your discretion.
Over the past year due to the pandemic, all our programs moved from in-person to Zoom. As a result, income from our monthly programs has decreased while our expenses have gone up, with the necessary addition of a paid “communications assistant” to our Team. We need your help in order to be able to continue to offer these Half-Day Retreats and other programs online.

Please contribute what you are able.
