RETREATS

SUMMER SILENT RETREAT FOR RELIGIOUS & LAY WOMEN

Silent Directed Retreats Focus on Providing the Skills to Help With:

  • Step Back: Leave daily routines & distractions
  • Reflection: Allow for deep thought & process

  • Prayer & Quiet Time: Engage with the Lord, listen, become closer to him
  • Daily Guidance: Helping you intensify your personal relationship with God.

A silent retreat is a great way to reconnect with God. It is an opportunity outside of our everyday life that gives us time to rest in God’s love, to understand more deeply who we are, and who God is calling us to be. It is a precious time of reflection on scripture, where the directee’s sacred story is carefully considered with daily guidance from an experienced spiritual director to intensify their personal relationship with God. It may also be experienced to discern any life transition, wanting to make a more intentional vocational choice or just find out what God’s desire is for you.

This is taking place on 53 acres of private land in Eastern Connecticut, USA. It is inspired from Saint Ignatius of Loyola’s Spiritual Exercises.  

Summer Silent Retreats For Religious & Lay Women Provide Skills To Help With:

  • Reflection: Allow for deep thought & process
  • Prayer & Quiet Time: Engage with the Lord,listen,become closer to him
  • Deepening your intimacy with God

This retreat will rehabilitate desire as the spiritual foundation of our spiritual and religious lives. Through prayer and discernment, we will deepen our intimacy with God. As we companion closely with Saint Ignatius and with other men and women from the mystical tradition, we will honor our true reality as beloved children of God while unmasking our many false religious imaginings. We will see how letting the Spirit of Jesus rise from our depths, our lives can irrigate our parched communities and our world.

“IT MEANS VALUING THE IMMENSE CONTRIBUTION IN WHICH WOMEN, LAY AND RELIGIOUS, HAVE MADE AND CONTINUE TO MAKE TO THE LIFE OF OUR COMMUNITIES.” – POPE FRANCIS
