WHAT TO EXPECT
What’s all involved in the
experience of a retreat?
It’s all about You and God!
Click here for a description about different kinds of retreats.
No phones. No TV. No email. No one will bother you
for anything! In our noisy world, it is often hard to
hear God’s voice. Some people think they can’t be quiet
for a whole weekend. But they discover that this quiet
is the best part of the retreat.
Pray with others
Morning and evening prayer with other retreatants
Eucharist celebrated with great reverence
Time for personal prayer & reflection
Lots of time to talk to and listen to God in your own
heart. You will have your own private room.
You can visit the chapel or walk around the beautiful
forty-five acre property.
Walk the outdoor Stations of the Cross and a labyrinth.
There are many quiet rooms for reading and prayer.
Peaceful rest and relaxation
You can relax in your own private room and just sit in
your easy chair to rest or reflect. A lot of people tell us
they take several naps! Several comfortable lounges
are available where you can sit and perhaps browse
through the many books which are available in the first
floor library or in the bookstore.
Informative & inspirational talks by staff
Our preached retreats offer a theme that is carried
through the entire weekend in each talk and prayer
service. Both priests and lay people offer insights.
Professional Staff to talk privately with you
Many times during retreat people begin to think
more deeply about their life in God and what
they truly desire. Gentle listening, spiritual
direction and reconciliation are available to
everyone all weekend.
