Retreats

Retreats are a way to take one's relationship with God and one's practice deeper. They offer time and space away from the busyness and demands of daily life, and allow the mind, body, and spirit to surrender to God's presence and action within. Retreats are a common practice in many spiritual traditions and are a valuable tool to aid one's interior transformation in Christ.

Silence…

We find God in silence and recognize a power greater than ourselves.
Silence leads to healing.
Silence allows insight about commitment, the wisdom of contemplative prayer, the inception oftrust, forgiveness and God’s presence in our lives..
God wraps us in the silence of his love.
