Sister Katharine Wewer , OSB
We come before You
With our burden of guilt and shame
If only we would be aware
Of the grace, strength and healing
when we ask forgiveness.
We are so slow to accept your love
It takes a long time of you drawing us to You
Before we are ready to return that love
You patiently wait for us
To come close
Where we may be touched by your gentleness.
The season of Lent is an enriching opportunity for us to tend the seed once sown in the ground of our being. It’s a good season for a heart check-up – a time of offering the heart. You do not need a perfect offering for this retreat. A broken, pierced heart will be sufficient. Are you aware of the daily movements of grace in your life? Are you open to new opportunities for spiritual growth? This mini-retreat can assist you in returning to your heart. Cost: $50.00. A $20.00 non-refundable, non-transferable deposit is required at time of registration. Lunch is included in the price.
Silent Directed Retreat3-Day: January 8-11, 2015 ($235); 5-Day: January 8-14, 2015 ($385); 8-Day: January 8-17, 2015 ($575)
This Retreat is based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola. This retreat is a time to practice silence in order to make room for God to work in your life and by this to strengthen your relationship with Him. In the silence you are better able to hear God’s invitation to open your heart and surrender your soul in a deeper way. Each day you will meet with a Spiritual Director to assist you in discerning God’s invitation and to offer suggestions to guide you during your silence. The Retreat opens with dinner at 6 p.m. on Thursday, January 8 and ends after lunch on Sunday for the 3-Day and after morning liturgy for the 5-Day and the 8-Day. Lodging and meals are included in the price. A $50.00 non-refundable, non-transferable deposit is required at time of registration.
