About the Event
The Take a Break weekends provide a silent retreat experience in a brief form. Over the weekend, you will have personal prayer and reflection time in your own comfortable private room, in the beautiful surroundings of our chapel and on our beautiful well-groomed grounds. A daily meeting with a Spiritual Director will help you to unpack your retreat experience and offer further prayer suggestions. It is a golden opportunity to deepen your personal relationship with God and to discover anew how much God loves you! Delicious meals prepared in our kitchen and snacks are provided on the Saturday and Sunday morning. The retreat concludes after lunch on Sunday. There is free parking at the Centre. Why not take this opportunity to reset direction in your spiritual life, listen for God’s desire for you, become more aware of God at work in your life or open yourself to other moments of spiritual growth? If this sounds appealing, the silent, directed Take a Break Weekend Retreat is for you. Register now.
