O Mother of Jesus and Our Mother full of grace, bear His peace, His presence, His
holiness, your Divine Son into our very souls; nourish our minds with His mind for
lowliness; our hearts with His heart for self-giving; our souls with His soul for
quietness, resting in His Father’s Will; all our energies with His strength for zeal;
and with your holy maternal love support each step of your little ones as they cling
to you and strive to walk in His likeness. Amen.
Join the Community in praising the Lord in Holy Mass, and in His own words of the
Psalms in the Liturgy of the Hours
A solitary retreat is a challenging experience, like going into the desert.
With relief from daily routine and pressures it fosters intensity of life. It sets
a context for the learning of that self-discipline necessary for the fulfillment
of the desire of every heart–deep communion with God.
WE HAVE NO SET FEES We depend upon each retreatant to give according to their means–enlightened by Faith. We need your support.
YOU SHOULD BRING
-Strong walking shoes
-Tape recorder (may be helpful)
MODEST CLOTHING IS EXPECTED IN OUR MONASTIC SETTING
May we suggest that Advent and Christmastide as well as Lent and Eastertide, are
especially suited for a solitary period with the Lord. Advent and Lent call strongly
for conversion and preparedness for what is coming. Christmas and Eastertide call
for rejoicing in the benefits and strength we have in Jesus Christ.
