8 Day Silent, Guided, Directed Retreat

Susan Ballotti; Sr. Pascazia Kinkuhaire, DMJ; Fr. Joseph Miller, SVD

The theme of this year's retreat is "God’s Tender Touch through Prayer".  This traditional, silent retreat is based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. It provides time for spiritual reflection, solitude & prayer, inviting retreatants to be attentive to the inner movements of the Holy Spirit. Prayer focuses on scripture and one’s personal faith journey. Our schedule includes a Scripture-based conference each morning, individual direction (a daily meeting with a spiritual director), celebration of daily Eucharist, and an optional evening activity: Labyrinth walk, Video Reconciliation service, and Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. It is suggested that participants bring a journal.
