CENTERING PRAYER WEEKEND RETREAT

     7:00 PM Friday to 1:00 PM Sunday
     December 7 – 9

A centering prayer weekend provides the time, space and discipline needed to experience the inner stillness which occurs when given the opportunity for frequent centering prayer periods alone and in common. John of the Cross refers to “restful tranquility” and “solitary quietude” when speaking of contemplation.  Jesus says, “Come to me all you who are weary, and you will find rest for your souls.”  (Mt. 11:28)  Donation: $130/$50 non-refundable deposit. Commuters welcome, all meals included.


WEEKEND RETREAT
9 PATHS TO WHOLENESS AND HOLINESS

     January 11 – 13, 2019
     7:00 PM Friday to 1:00 PM Sunday

During this weekend retreat, we will study 9 different personality types and the path to holiness and interior freedom for each.  We are all afflicted and blessed by this human condition of ours.  God knows what each of us needs and guides us each along a way to wholeness and holiness that is unique, yet universal.  The main goal of the weekend is to grow in understanding, acceptance and compassion for ourselves and others.  We all need that.  Donation: $150/$50 non-refundable deposit.  Residents and commuters welcome.  All meals and materials provided.
