Directed Retreat

This retreat is co-sponsored with the Spiritual Life Center

Spiritual Directors: Sr. Cathy Murtha, DW and  Joanne White


Weeklong Option: June 11-16, 2017

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. Directed retreats invite participants to quiet the mind and open the heart to become more aware of God’s presence in their lives. The retreat begins on Sunday evening with dinner at 6:00 p.m. and Mass at 7:00 p.m. The retreat concludes at 10:00 a.m. on Friday. Offering: $495.

3-Night Option: June 11-14, 2017

A 3-Day Option is also available starting Sunday evening with dinner at 6:00 p.m. and concluding Wednesday morning at 10:00 a.m. Offering:$315
