Join us for a fall visit!
Autumn is a quiet and beautiful time in Railroad Creek Valley. The aspen and larch trees turn to gold, snow begins to settle on the mountains, and select weeks include programs from Teaching Faculty. Registration is now open for visits between late August and October 31, 2017. Click here to register. We hope to see you in the Village!

Welcome to Holden Village

Over the course of 50 years now, Holden Village has been transformed from a copper mining town to a vibrant place of education, programming, and worship. It has been a rich journey of faith. Holden welcomes all people of good will who seek contemplation and community in the remote wilderness of the beautiful Cascade Mountains. We invite people of all ages to come and experience our rhythms, which inspire and equip travelers for a sustainable life of faith outside the Village. And we continue to listen to and reflect on our story and history as we seek to discover our place in God’s creative mission in our world. 

The Holden Journey

The physical journey to Holden is an adventure and a pilgrimage in and of itself. As we make this journey of significance, we find ourselves thinking about the spiritual journey to Holden - how do we prepare our minds and hearts for our time together? How do we set down the burdens we carry in our daily lives? How does this pilgrimage prepare us to listen for something new? Check out our new video below to move through the journey of a day at Holden Village. We hope to see you here in the mountains soon.
