Going to God Together
This silent women’s retreat will explore reflections on a variety of spiritual themes that are personal to our journey as Christians. The reflections are poetic, yet solidly grounded in the spiritual tradition of the Catholic Church. These reflections will be clearly “audible” in the heart of every person seeking to find God in the midst of their hectic everyday life. Some of those themes will include:
-Putting God in first place
-The unique plan for each of us
-Keep going ahead
-We go to God together
-Where two or three are gathered
-Taking Mary into our home
-Holy Spirit, friend of the soul
In addition to retreat presentations, the weekend will also include Celebration of the Eucharist, Free time/personal reflection, Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, group discussion, and a Reconciliation Service. Silence will be observed beginning after dinner on Friday and concluding before dinner on Saturday.
