Upcoming Retreats & Events:

A Weekend Retreat

Incarnational Spirituality: A True Holy Union                   
Stephen Coffey, OSB

7:00pm Friday, July 15 thru 1:30pm Sunday, July 17

“By virtue of creation and still more the Incarnation, nothing is profane to those who know how to see” (Teilhard de Chardin). And this seeing, this awareness challenges us each and every day to open ourselves to the Spirit, as did Mary, so that God who became incarnate in Jesus might touch God incarnate in each of us, and in turn, touch God incarnate in every being creating a true holy union in which God is in all. The retreat will include insights from Sacred Scripture, the writings of St. Bonaventure and Teilhard, and contemporary theologians Ilia Delio OSF, Denis Edwards, and Elaine Prevallet. Fr. Steve has served in retreat & spiritual direction ministries in New Mexico, Oregon, Hawaii, and California. He has also served in formation and leadership roles for his monastic community.
Cost: per person/shared $240($225 if paid in full by June 24); single room $335 ($320 if paid in full by June 24)

A Day Retreat

Here I am Lord – To What Are You Calling Me?            
Anne Hansen, MA
Saturday, May 14, 9:30am to 3:30pm

Life is ever changing and with it our calling evolves. Do you hear the call to change in the quiet of the night or the drone of traffic? At every stage of life, in youth as well as in the older years, God gives us gifts that can transform the world. Join us as we determine these gifts and the possibility of change through prayer, reflection and conversation. Includes lunch.  Cost: $50 ($45 if paid in full by May 8)
