Directed Retreat – Full Week

A directed retreat is a personally guided prayer experience in which the retreatant listens for God’s personal word spoken through the Sacred Scriptures. Each retreatant is assigned a director with whom the retreatant meets daily for reflection and spiritual discernment. Retreatants may request specific directors, although it may not be possible to comply with these requests.

The Summer Directed Retreat at Our Lady of Calvary will begin at 7:00 pm on the evening of June 28, 2020. Please plan to arrive at the Center between 4:00 and 5:30 pm. You will depart after breakfast on the last day of your retreat.

SILENCE, both interior, and exterior is a necessary condition for the efficacy of a directed retreat.

A Directed Retreat gives you the opportunity to meet daily one on one with a spiritual director to reflect on your spiritual journey and the presence and action of God in your life. You can experience the Directed Retreat for a full week or a long weekend.

Directed Retreats at OLC are open to both men and women. There will be daily Mass. There will be an opportunity to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

Come enjoy a week of peace and tranquility in a lovely country house nestled in historic Farmington Village. Savor the cuisine of Chef Bill, indulge in a massage, read, rest and relax. OLC is a fully air-conditioned facility. All retreatant bedrooms are individually air-conditioned.

The lovely pastoral grounds at OLC are just about in full bloom – finally.
