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 on the evening of June 20, 2019. Please plan to arrive at the Center between 4:00 and 5:30 p.m. 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.
