Prayer to Our Mother of Peace

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.

Seeking spiritual refreshment in the Lord in private retreats with The Society of Our Mother of Peace

The Society of Our Mother of Peace makes available private retreats, providing not only room and board to retreatants but also guidance and spiritual direction for those who express the desire for it. Since these are private retreats, the choice of subject matter (see retreat plans below) is left to each participant. We do have some suggestions however that may be helpful to retreatants, especially those who have never made a private retreat before. Retreatanst are free to choose, combine or adapt whatever is suggested.


Clothing and Hygiene

Our hermitages are heated and air conditioned for all season comfort, but are privately placed along our woodland paths to give you a sense of solitude. As all our paths are softly graveled for sure footings, you should bring strong and comfortable walking shoes. Also, walking from your private hermitage will be done in all kinds of weather, so tastefully modest season specific clothing, personal toiletries and any necessary medications should be packed for your stay with us. If you have specific health problems or accessibility needs, please bring them to our attention so that we can make your stay with us safe and enjoyable for you.

In a retreat environment which is very unlike the demandingly distracting outside world around us, we must respect the need to do something different and maintain a more contemplatively reserved inward and outward disposition. All of us are trying to give ourselves a retreat from all the outside demands on our senses and strive to hear the quiet voice of our Savior that is so smothered by the outside  world.
