Directed Retreat – Week Long

September 9 @ 7:00 pm - September 16 @ 10:30 am

directed retreat

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

This special September Directed Retreat at Our Lady of Calvary will begin at 7:00 pm on the evening of September 9, 2021. 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.

About Our 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 setting nestled in historic Farmington Village. Savor the cuisine of Chef Bill, read rest, and relax in your air-conditioned bedroom or outdoors on our twelve acres of grounds and gardens.
