What is a retreat?
A retreat is simply time away to be with the Lord. It is a deliberate movement into sacred space and sacred time, to BE rather than to do, to quiet down and rest our bodies, minds and souls. Retreat is YOUR time to focus on your relationship with God. Through conferences, prayer and solitude, we invite you to reflect more deeply on what God is doing in your life right now.
The retreat is conducted by the Retreat Team and includes both scheduled conferences and gatherings for prayer and Eucharist, along with personal time for rest and reflection. There is also the opportunity to celebrate the sacrament of reconciliation and to meet with one of the retreat leaders, for those who wish. There will be times for silence and times for conversations. The retreat is primarily an experience for the individual that is shared in the company of others who desire to grow in their faith.
