But, in order to hear the voice of God,
one has to have silence 
in one's soul...                                
-St. Faustina           

 

 

 

Classic 3-Day Retreat

If you have never been on a silent retreat or if this is your first time doing the Ignatian spiritual exercises, we recommend the Classic Three Day experience. 

This format is great for first-timers and those whose busy schedules won’t allow more than a weekend. Experience the essentials of the Spiritual Exercises in this intense weekend experience.

This version is designed to walk you through the dynamics of the Exercises with several guided meditations and conferences, as well as time for personal prayer. This option is also good for those who are learning to incorporate the program of life and a daily prayer routine into daily living.

I invite all Christians, everywhere, at this very moment, to a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ, or at least an openness to letting Him encounter them. No one should think that this invitation is not meant for him or her, since no one is excluded from the joy brought by the Lord.

Do you really think I can be silent?

“Let us not be afraid to be silent outside and inside ourselves, so that we are able not only to perceive God’s voice, but also the voice of the person next to us, the voices of others."  --Pope Benedict XVI, July 4, 2010

Silence does not equal boredom! It is one of the key elements to the success of any retreat. God speaks to us in the silence of our hearts and so it is necessary to maintain an external and internal silence.  Here are some tips to help you prepare and maintain silence during your retreat:

  • Don’t bring any mobile or electronic devices, such as smart phones, laptops, etc.
  • If absolutely necessary to have your phone, switch it to off or set it in airplane mode.
  • Put all “pendings” and “to do” items in God’s hands…if you take care of His things, He’ll take care of yours!

 

Can I bring my infant?

We love infants and small children, however they can be a distraction to you and others who are trying to focus during a silent retreat.  In order to keep the spirit of silence and prayer, we cannot accomodate infants or small children on our silent retreats.  Thank you for your understanding.

What are the Spiritual Exercises?

The Spiritual Exercises are an opportunity to retreat from the hectic, noisy world and encounter Jesus Christ in a more profound and personal way. These retreats touch on so many important aspects of the spiritual life. The central principles are self-knowledge, discernment of God’s will, and the decision to follow Christ our Lord more closely.

[This retreat] was such a life changing experience. I haven't known how to put it into words. I hope one day I can come again.

I experienced Christ’s love in such a deep and profound way that I left completely transformed. I hope and pray that others will also have the grace and blessing to be able to attend."
