• This only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord

  • Be still, and know that I am God

  • A place and a time for God

  • Come to me, all who labor and are heavy burdened, and I will give you rest

  • Come to the feast of Heaven and Earth

  • At the works of your hands I shout for joy

  • Be still, and know that I am God

Summer Directed Retreat I 2021

Date: July 2 - 4:00pm to July 9 - 11:00am

Details:

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 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.

Date: July 2 to 9, 2021
