Guided Retreats offer a personal, quiet space to explore your relationship with God and the love that surrounds you always.
As we go through adulthood, we experience many moments where life calls us to pause and wonder.
Transitions in family circumstances, professional career, moving to a new location, marriage or death can be marked by an inner change as we sometimes examine our faith during these times. Sometimes we find ourselves at a point where we need something, but we’re not sure exactly what we’re yearning for.
As you seek inner-peace in your life, a Guided Retreat offers a personal, quiet space to explore your relationship with God and the love that surrounds you always. We work closely with you to create a Guided Retreat customized around your needs and where you are in life and on your spiritual journey. A quiet retreat provides an opportunity to rest, renew, learn and grow in your own spirituality.
During the retreat you are provided a comfortable Quiet Room and also given time for contemplative and solitary activities, including prayer, journaling, reading, walking the grounds, art and music, and use of our Chapel.
You may also request the companioning of a spiritual director during your retreat. Our directors are sensitive and responsive to where you are on your journey and are experienced in different faith practices. You will have time to meet with one of them and share any issues that may have emerged. You may be given a scripture reading or something that might help you to be compassionately present with whatever has surfaced in your life.
If you have further questions or are interested in scheduling a Guided Retreat, please contact Sharon Devo at 630-909-6809.
Faith is not a light which scatters all our darkness, but a lamp which guides our steps in the night and suffices for the journey.
