Fall Directed Retreat for Men & Women
October 23, 2023 @ 4:00 pm – October 27, 2023 @ 9:00 am
In the extended time of quiet, one often moves into a deeper listening to God and
awareness of God’s presence and action in life.
Each day, besides the celebration of the Eucharist, the retreatant meets with a spiritual director to talk about his or her personal journey and experience of God. The remainder rest of the day is spent in solitude and silence, relaxing, praying, reading and reflecting.
The experience can clarify your dreams, purify your ambitions, expose your foolishness and refresh your life. A directed retreat enables one to spend uninterrupted hours exploring the movement of God in their life.
The spiritual director is a companion, helping the retreatant enter into this spiritual journey and listen to their heart with new openness to God’s will. It calls for receptivity to the movements of God and God’s Spirit, and the capacity and willingness to discuss one’s prayer with the director. The director gives guidance for prayer in response to your individual needs, making suggestions from scripture or other resources that may be helpful.
Check-in is on Monday between 3 and 4 pm.
