Advent Directed Retreat Extended

Date: December 11 - 4:00pm to December 18 - 11:00am

Details:

Advent seems like it is light years away, but before we know it our consumer world will be showing signs of Christmas. It is never too early to begin to ponder how am I going to make this Advent season more spiritually focused than other Advents?

Why not consider setting aside some time now to schedule an Advent Directed Retreat at St. Raphaela Center.

A directed retreat at St. Raphaela Center is a time of quiet in order to enhance attentiveness to God's voice within you and in your life. A reverent silence is maintained throughout the Retreat Center at all times including during meals. Each retreatant meets with his/her director daily for approximately 45 minutes. Our Spiritual Directors will be conducting this 7-day retreat.  Each one possesses the necessary skills to guide their directees compassionately and peacefully, allowing them to listen to God’s voice and to journey closely with their loving God, both within the retreat setting and going forth into their daily lives.  The number, nature and length of periods of formal prayer each day will depend upon the ability and needs of the individual and will be determined in conversation with the director. Retreatants are provided suggested scripture passages tailored to their own prayer. Ideally retreatants will have some experience in meditative prayer, the desire to enter into prolonged silence, and sufficient self-awareness to recognize their own inward movements. All retreatants have the opportunity for daily liturgy and reconciliation.
