Silent Directed Retreat

Silent Directed Retreat

Friday - Sunday, May 29-31, 2020

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 quiet of our Guest House, 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, and you are welcome to bring your contemplative crafts and journal.

We will meet as a group at 6:45 pm on Friday evening to open the retreat and again at 3:30 pm on Sunday for a short closing prayer service.

  • Arrivals and registration: 2-4 pm Friday; ends 4:00 pm Sunday
  • Fee: $250; deposit $50.
  • Registration deadline: May 22, 2020
  • Limited enrollment - residential retreatants only

  • This is a new addition to the calendar of retreats. There is also a Silent Directed Retreat Tuesday–Thursday, November 12–14, 2019 see here »

  • 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).
