A silent directed retreat is a great way to reconnect with God. It is an opportunity outside of our everyday life that gives us time to rest in God’s love, to understand more deeply who we are, and who God is calling us to be.  We do not always realize how much of our life is filled with noise, thoughts, and busy-ness. Silence makes room for listening, for response, and for contemplation.

A silent directed retreat is designed to provide time and space for prayer and solitude. There will be opportunity to meet daily with a spiritual director, providing time to reflect on your spiritual journey and the presence and action of God in your life.

Resident with private room, $560

Please note! There may be limited spaces available depending on pandemic conditions
