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. Rooted in Lutheran traditions, 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.

Each guest and staff bed in the Village is covered with a handmade quilt made by Holdenites near and far. Every quilt in the Village tells a story and is a piece of Holden history in its own right. Find out more on the Quilts page.
