Weeklong Directed Retreat

June 14-20, 2020

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

This weeklong contemplative experience invites you to a deep encounter with God, Who is Love, and offers you personal prayer time to rekindle gratitude in your heart. The silent retreat will include daily conversation with a spiritual director, the opportunity for daily Eucharist, and ample time for prayer, meditation and rest.  Walk the labyrinth, get a massage (extra charge), enter the silence and discover the path of Love and Gratitude that beckons you forward.

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.

This retreat is co-sponsored with the Spiritual Life Center.

Offering for 6 nights: $575

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