5-Day Silent Retreat: June 18-23
The Society of St. Edmund will be conducting a 5-Day Silent Retreat in the Ignatian tradition from June 18th to June 23rd, 2017 at St. Anne’s Shrine in Isle La Motte. Using principles from the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola, retreatants will be invited to contemplate scripture passages, celebrate daily Eucharist and meet with a Spiritual Director each day. Spiritual Directors are specifically trained for this type of retreat and will serve as companions and co-discerners of the Spirit during the retreat. Applicants should be comfortable maintaining an atmosphere of silence and be able to share their prayer experience with a Spiritual Director in a daily meeting of about forty-five minutes. The retreat begins at 7:00 pm on Sunday, June 18th and concludes with lunch on Friday, June 23rd. The cost is $500. Applications and further information can be obtained by calling the Shrine at (802) 928-3362 or via email at [email protected]. Space is limited due to single room accommodations.
