Silent Theme Retreat

Our Silent Theme Retreat is designed for those who would like a quiet, less social retreat experience with some input, but more time for personal prayer and reflection.

Each day of the retreat will include Morning Prayer, followed by a presentation from a member of the retreat team, daily Mass and evening prayer. You will have the opportunity to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation during your retreat.

The World will be Saved by Beauty

Our spiritual path to God may begin with our attraction to beauty. The more we are aware of the beauty around and inside of us, the more beauty we project toward others. Beauty that flows from our hearts, reminds us of the source from which it comes: God.

Beauty has been described as the intersection where our physical bodies can hold both the desolation and despair and the joy of happiness of our lives – the place that gives our lives its deepest meaning

Come spend time looking for what is beautiful. Intentionally take time to focus on those things that lift you up and help you to feel closer to your God, the One who sends beauty to refresh, nurture, and sustain you, the One who invites you into beauty’s Immortal Heart. You may rediscover beautiful things that perhaps you’ve taken for granted.

Movie Matinee – The Assisi Underground

Shot on location in Assisi, The Assisi Underground shows the work of Father Ruffino, one of the “Righteous Gentiles,” in sheltering Italian Jews and transporting them to safety during the Nazi occupation. Unlike many World War II melodramas, this one rings true because it is true, and its good acting and simple direction add to the authenticity.

Watch the trailer:

Attendees will receive a boxed lunch to enjoy during the film. A short discussion will follow the screening.

This day program will be facilitated by Sister Mary Ann Strain, CP. She is the Program Director here at OLC.
