Trust and Power: Conversations with God Silent 24-Hour Retreat
Friday, February 3, @ 4:30 pm – Saturday, February 4, @ 4:30 pm
Sometimes prayer feels like the best kept secret of the saints, but the reality is that it is as easy to do as a baby murmuring “Mama!” During this retreat we will talk about and experience a variety of prayer modes: vocal prayer, Scriptural prayer, meditative prayer, contemplative prayer, lectio divina which includes many of these types of prayer. Above all, we will gaze upon our God in the Eucharist and let Him speak to us. Individuals $130, Couples $215 (includes lodging and 3 meals).
