Individually Directed Retreat

Individually Directed Retreat

Tuesday – Thursday, October 2 – 4, 2018

Our God of love so desires to meet with you in the quiet of your heart. Carve out time to come aside and be still, to let your soul settle into the silence, to be intimately present to yourself and to God.

A trained spiritual guide will meet with you twice during the silence and solitude of your retreat to help you listen for the movement of God in your prayer and life journey.

Your spiritual guide can introduce you to ways of prayer and suggest scriptural or other prayer content; you are welcome to bring contemplative crafts and journal.

We will meet as a group after supper on Tuesday evening to open the retreat and again at 3:30 pm on Thursday for a short closing prayer service.

  • All retreats and quiet days at St. John’s Convent take place in the milieu of a contemporary monastic community which has a daily rhythm of prayer. All guests are invited to take part in the daily Eucharist, and those staying overnight may like to join us in the Divine Office (Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer, and Compline).
