5 Day Silent Directed Retreat

This 5-day retreat is based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola. In addition to daily meetings with an assigned spiritual director, there will be ample time for rest, personal prayer and walks outdoors. There will be daily Mass and opportunity for the Sacrament of Reconciliation during your retreat. The main purpose of a Silent Directed Retreat is to help you hear the voice of God and deepen your relationship with Him. Through scripture and reflection under the daily guidance of an experienced spiritual director, you will become more aware of His presence and action in your life in an atmosphere of silence and solitude.

Preached Silent Retreat
Actual Cost: $350.00
Minimum Offering: $225.00
According to the late counselor and author, Earnie Larsen, there are two phases of recovery. He refers to them as Stage 1 and Stage 2. Stage 1 is of the utmost importance: abstinence. Stage 2 is “rebuilding of the life that was saved in Stage 1.” This weekend we will focus on what Stage 2 recovery is and how to get there. The 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous will be the basis for this retreat.
