What is a Directed Retreat?

Here at Our Lady of Calvary, we have found that many of our regular retreatants have heard about Directed Retreats, but don’t know much about them. We have also found that everyone who makes a Directed retreat at OLC loves it!

Did you know? During a Directed Retreat, you would be able to

  • Deepen in your relationship with God.
  • Experience a time of refreshment in silence and peace?
  • Have an opportunity to speak with a trained spiritual director each day?
  • Better recognize God’s loving presence in your daily life.
  • Experience God’s personal love and care for you.
  • Find more purpose and meaning in your life.
  • Have opportunities for daily prayer and liturgy.

Join us on Zoom to learn more about a directed retreat this summer or fall at OLC.

We’ll answer questions such as:

  1. Should I make a Directed Retreat?
  2. What happens during a Directed Retreat?

When are OLC’s Directed Retreats? Click below to read more.



Don’t be shy! Join us for this informative presentation and find out whether a Directed Retreat is right for you.
