Silent retreats are a time for peaceful prayer and quiet reflection to obtain fresh perspectives that will enhance personal growth, spiritual development and improve family, social and professional relationships.
Activities for retreats include:
- Holy Mass
- Meditations (Silent prayer guided by a priest)
- Benediction and Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament
- Holy Rosary and Way of the Cross
- Sacrament of Reconciliation
- Spiritual Direction
- Time for silent reflection, private reading and prayer.
Each guest is provided their own private room with ensuite as well as three meals a day in a beautiful dining room, all imbued with a warm and comfortable family atmosphere.
To get the most out of your retreat, we suggest you read To Make a Good Retreat (PDF) by James Stenson.
