This retreat contains short lectures, reflective activities, and quiet time. Come to learn, reflect, and share to transform your life. This time of reflection provides an opportunity to get to know yourself better. Create a timeline, design a tree of your life, remember your story. Light breakfast and box lunch on Saturday included.
Journey with three people who transformed their lives.
- Thomas Merton: Finding Faith
The twenty-seven years he spent in Gethsemani brought about profound changes in his self-understanding. This ongoing conversion impelled him into the political arena, where he became, according to Daniel Berrigan, the conscience of the peace movement of the 1960s.
- Dorothy Day: Finding Purpose
Her life followed an unorthodox path – moving from rejecting religion in favor of activism to embracing Catholicism and integrating it with social action through the Catholic Worker Movement.
- Henri Nouwen: Finding Self
Nouwen was interested in pastoral ministry, and he knew that the comparatively new discipline of psychology was important despite the fact that Church circles felt it undermined faith.
The retreat takes place over two days, Saturday, July 31 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Sunday, August 1 from 1 to 5 p.m.
All participants will receive a book with retreat materials and a small journal. You will also get to experience time in a Quiet Pod at Soul Care.
Cost is $69 per person
