Throughout the Bible God reveals himself on mountaintops. In fact, we speak of "mountaintop experiences" in our lives--those moments where we have had a deep experience of God. This retreat will follow the prayers of the Spiritual Exercises in hopes that through silence and prayer these will be days of encountering our God who desires to reveal himself to us.
This retreat includes 7 presentations, daily mass, 6 hot 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.
