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.

Lenten Evening of Reflection

Lenten Evening of Reflection: Memory and the Cross

Lenten Evening of Reflection – Memory and the Cross Is the Christian community developing Alzheimer’s? When someone has Alzheimer’s not only do they forget who they are but the people around them begin to forget too. The illness has a way of making everyone start lowering their standards. Is this happening to the Christian community?

This Lenten Evening of Reflection will focus on three questions.
1. What as a Christian community do we remember of the Passion of Jesus?
2. Why do we remember it?
3. How do we remember it?

We will conclude our evening with Night Prayer

This Evening of Reflection will be presented by Sister Mary Ann Strain, CP. She is the Program Director here at OLC.
