7-Night Silent Directed Retreat

A Silent Directed Retreat is designed to provide time and space for prayer and solitude, deepen discernment, and listen to the whispered song of spirit. You may wish to review the events and relationships in your life and reflect on how they relate to your connection with God.

You will meet with your spiritual director once a day and they may make suggestions for further reflection (prayer, Scripture, poetry, imagery, etc.) based on the questionnaire you will submit before the start of the retreat.

A retreat at Genesis, with its peaceful, contemplative spaces and 19-acre Providence Arboretum, will open your heart to do the profoundly personal work of living and breathing into your spiritual journey and feeling the presence and action of God in your life.

This is a silent retreat. Check-in begins at 3:00PM and supper will be served at 6:00pm. The retreat will begin after supper. Silence will begin at that time also.

Cost: $780

 

Facilitated by L to R:  Jane Comerford, CSJ, and Suzanne Nolan

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
