An Ignatian, Silent Weekend Retreat for Women
This retreat has the option of coming a day early on Thursday and spending Thursday night and Friday in silence with times for guided prayer or simple, calming peace. You may use the buttons below to register for just the Weekend Retreat or the Day of Quiet and the Weekend Retreat.
Knowing about Jesus is part of our faith development, coming to know the person of Jesus Christ in a more intimate and personal way leads to spiritual depth and transformation. Breaking open Scripture, setting aside time for silence and prayer are key to meeting Jesus heart to heart. This retreat is about your personal response to the question Jesus asks His disciples, "Who do you say that I am?" and coming to know in a deeper way who you are to Jesus.
Groups Attending: Individuals, Lady of Peace, Hallie B Women's Group, St. Mary of Vernon, Deanery II B, Meet Me in the Silence, St Mary Celle
