RETREAT THEME

This silent retreat will be an opportunity to discover in your own life how you are being invited to “do what you reasonably can with great peace and simplicity of heart." (St. Julie Billiart, SDN)

Perhaps exhaustion, distraction and the demands of life are calling you to consider: What is reasonable for me to do? How do I sabotage peace? How am I being invited to allow simplicity of heart to be a reality in my life?

Scriptures, poetry and readings are offered as windows to explore your soul's desire for "great peace and simplicity of heart". This retreat includes times for group gatherings for guided meditations and sharing our stories.
