"Thirst for God"

Experience a Deeper Listening to God through the Rhythm of Benedictine Silence and Prayer

Although most of the retreat is spent in silence, worship services built into the schedule allow for time in community while maintaining an attitude of contemplation. Private rooms enable participants to maintain the silence of the retreat. Home-cooked meals are served, in silence, cafeteria style. Participants are welcome to join the monastic community for Lauds and Vespers. The peaceful environment and beautiful grounds provide a contemplative atmosphere that encourages spending time alone with God. The Sisters beautifully live out St. Benedict’s advice to welcome the stranger as Christ.

Participants should bring a mask, Bible, pen and comfortable clothing.  Bed and bath linens provided. Housing will be in private rooms in St. Mary Hall or St. Joseph Hall. Space is limited so rooms are reserved in order of deposits received. If you have questions about the retreat weekend, please contact Deanna Shotts or Susie Knedlik.

Cost is $220, which includes meals and accommodations. A deposit of $100 will reserve space for the retreat.
