Silent Directed Retreats – with group centering prayer experiences- are open to everyone; men and women. Each directed retreat is different. Directed 1 is designed that you may adjust the length of your retreat according to your personal schedule, Directed 2 is ONLY a 7 day retreat.

What is a Directed Retreat? A primary way to hear the voice of God is through the people and events of daily experience. In today’s culture, it is important to have some space to pause and reflect before moving on to the next event that seeks your attention. The goal of the directed retreat experience is to allow you to go deeper into your relationship with God while savoring what is happening in your life.

The retreat includes daily meetings with your own director and a period of personal prayer using scripture. Applicants will be sent a response form to help the team select an appropriate director for each directee. Optional periods for group centering prayer are provided each day. Eucharist is celebrated each day and there is an opportunity for the Sarcrament of Reconciliation during the retreat.

This year we are introducing the option of commuting to your directed retreat. The commuting rate includes all meals, prayer times, and daily meetings with a Spiritual Director (excluding lodging).
