What is a Retreat?
The Gospel story of Bartemaeus, the blind man, gives us a hint at the faith experience of a retreat. He cries out to the Lord for help in curing his blindness. The Lord asks what he desires and he says;” Master, let me see again!”
We seek, in a retreat of any form, to
see beyond the surface of our everyday life with all its highs and lows.
Extracting ourselves from this daily routine, we enter into an atmosphere
of solitude and peace. We take the time to see and feel the presence of
our God below the surface of our daily movement and find God in the 95
acres of nature, the quiet of the chapel or our room and the nourishment
of the sacraments and the scriptures. We need to take the time to see our
life with a new or renewed perspective. We are called to challenge our
own priorities. We plan for our future with God as a more intimate player
in our daily life.
In the hope of enhancing your retreat experience, we have massage therapists available during weekend retreats. Please click here to view the brochure.
