icon-of-jesusListening to Silence

Truth arises from the silence of being to the quiet tremendous presence of the Word.  Then, sinking again into silence, the truth of words bears us down into the silence of God”  Thomas Merton

Some additional notes on the retreat:

The retreat begins with arrivals at 4 pm on Thursday, March 9th and concludes at noon on March 12, 2017. The property of the retreat house and adjacent trails are beautiful so we suggest that you bring some warm clothes and boots for walking outside. All bedding is provided.

It is understood that attendees of the retreat are engaged in a regular practice of
contemplative prayer.
Please plan on attending the entire weekend, including the final closing. We enter and leave the silence as community.
This retreat is silent, and we invite you to please respect the desire of the community to be alone with God – together. There will be opportunities throughout the retreat to speak to a retreat leader for spiritual direction or if you just need to let it out!

We are very much looking forward to being together. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our Registrar.
