Our June directed retreat consists of six days of spiritual direction. Retreatants will meet with a spiritual director daily (or less if you desire) to reflect on God’s Presence and movement in your life as revealed in prayer. You may also review the events and relationships in your life and the response to God that is being made. The spiritual director may make suggestions (prayer forms, Scripture, reading materials, etc…) to support and deepen your awareness of and response to God. You will have this week of quiet and peace for personal reflection at our Center and around our beautiful grounds. This is a silent retreat. Please contact the Welcome Center at 410-442-3120 if you have a preference of spiritual directors listed below. Check-in begins at 3pm, dinner will be served at 6pm and the retreat will begin after dinner. Silence will begin at that time also.
