  • Why Retreat?

    There was a clear pattern in the life of Jesus: he appeared in public saying what his father said and doing what his father was doing. Then he disappeared—he retreated. Over and over that rhythm persisted. Since we are apprentices of Jesus, learning to live our lives as he would live them if he were in our place, we follow his pattern. Retreats provide an opportunity for spiritual renewal, for developing or reconnecting to one’s core values, for a prayerful encounter with God in a supportive environment. Retreat is a spiritual practice that allows us to do what is presently under our power in order to become the kinds of persons who, as we dream and desire, can follow Jesus in our actual lives. Retreats are occasional times we build into our monthly and annual calendars in order to practice solitude and silence with more focus and intensity.

  • Who Should Come?

    The one who feels as if their truest self and God are getting buried under the clutter of life. The one who believes that even a brief retreat can strip away day–to–day distractions, yielding to us a clearer picture of God and ourselves. The one who would like to learn that the world we try so hard to control survives even when we are inactive — when we retreat from it.
