Unplugged: A Time of your Own to Journey with God


Weeklong Directed Retreat

June 16-22, 2019

Sr. Cathleen Murtha, D.W. and Joanne White

The weeklong contemplative experience is a way to unplug from the noise of daily life. This silent retreat will include daily conversations with a spiritual director and the opportunity for daily Eucharist. A directed retreat is an extended time to journey with God in prayer, meditation, and quiet. Walk the labyrinth, get a massage (extra charge), enter the quiet, and rediscover the purpose of your life.

The retreat begins on Sunday evening with dinner at 6:00 p.m. and Mass at 7:00 p.m. We welcome you to arrive any time after 3:00 p.m. The retreat concludes at 10:00 a.m. on the final day of your stay.

Offering for 6 nights: $575

Offering for 5 nights (depart 6/21): $495
