The theme for the 2017-2018 retreat season is “Come and Rest in Me.”
In Matthew 11:28, we read, "Come to me all you who are weary and are burdened and I will give you rest." If we are going to rest in Christ, we need first of all to recognize his presence in all the circumstances of our lives. Part of that resting is to slow down and be quiet and pay attention to that constant presence. We don't have to "come" or "go" any-where; Christ is with us always. In this retreat we are invited to pay attention to that presence, to welcome that presence, to see what hinders us from being more aware of the presence of Christ. We need to have our eyes opened so that we can recognize him on the journey.
The schedule during the weekend includes Confessions, a Healing Service, availability of preaching staff to meet with one-on-one, Eucharistic celebrations, and more. Accommodations include private room and bath with linens, lounge, chapel, all meals provided in our dining room, conference rooms, and snacks.
This silent retreat begins on Friday night with orientation at 7:30 PM and finishes with the Noon meal on Sunday. The cost of the weekend is $170, which includes a $50 deposit to confirm your registration.
