April 6 - 8, 2023
Groups Attending: Individuals
This retreat is currently at capacity or registration is closed. Please call the office at 847.381.1261 with questions.
On retreat, we will reflect prayerfully on the primary scriptures and actions of Triduum to discern how we enter into the Mystery of Christ which our Lenten disciplines will have already revealed to us. Knowing ourselves can deepen our relationship with Christ who is the central focus of Triduum.
This retreat includes 7 presentations, daily mass, 6 meals, the opportunity for one-on-one spiritual direction with a trained spiritual director, and many other opportunities to explore our 80 acres and almost 60k square feet of interior space. All activities are optional, but we do ask everyone to respect the quiet of the retreat house for everyone to have the opportunity to read, sleep and reflect in the quiet.
Bellarmine has two libraries, a resource center, two chapels, and many other common areas. Outdoor spaces include a various walking trails, various prayer gardens, a gazebo, stations of the cross, as well as a few patios and outdoor chairs and benches. Each retreatant has their own bedroom.
