Due to the frantic pace of contemporary life, it is essential for our spiritual and physical health to take time to pray.  A weekend directed retreat offers you the opportunity to experience the graced rhythm of life in which silence and rest restore your body and God revives your soul.  Liturgy, spiritual direction and optional contemplative prayer periods are included.  Please register early.  These fill quickly. Donation: $130/$50 non-refundable deposit with registration.


CENTERING PRAYER WEEKEND RETREATS
              7:00 PM Friday to 1:00 PM Sunday


              December 8 – 10, 2017                  February 16 – 18, 2018


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.


GROWING IN ACCEPTANCE AND COMPASSION FOR MYSELF AND OTHERS
          January 12 – 14, 2018     7:00 PM Friday to 1:00 PM Sunday


During this weekend retreat, we will notice how our different personality types cause us to suffer…and others, too.  We get a feel for who we are at our best and at our worst and how God’s grace liberates and frees us to be our best selves.  The main goal of the weekend is to grow in understanding, acceptance and compassion for ourselves and others.  We all need that.  Please save the dates and come.  Donation: $150/$50 non-refundable deposit.  Residents and commuters welcome.  All meals and materials provided.


RETREAT WEEKEND FOR DEACONS
        May 18 – 20, 2018        7:00 PM Friday to 1:00 PM Sunday


Save this date for your annual retreat.  This silent directed retreat will replenish you for even more fruitful ministry to the people of God.  Donation: $130/ $50 deposit with registration.
