Our directed retreat pairs you with a spiritual director for the duration of the retreat. One meets with his or her director once a day, usually for 50-55 minutes. During this retreat, there will be an optional Morning Prayer prior to breakfast, daily Mass in the afternoon, three optional short retreat conferences, as well as the opportunity to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation and the Sacrament of the Sick.
The bulk of the day for a person making a Directed Retreat is spent in silence and reflection. Depending upon the suggestion of one’s spiritual director, one may be encouraged to journal, to pray over a specific passage of Scripture and most importantly, LISTEN as the Lord speaks during this sacred time. Retreatants have access to the beautiful grounds (60 acres) of Franciscan Retreats and Spirituality Center, the Chapel, and the Retreat Library.
Each Spiritual Director only has a maximum of five retreatants s/he sees a day. Space is limited to 20 retreatants, with each retreatant having a private bathroom for the duration of the retreat.
Cost: $530.00. The $30.00 registration fee is due with registration. The balance may be paid ahead of time or during the retreat.
Due to other Retreat times this year, we are unable to offer a 2017 Directed Retreat. If you are interested, please give us a call (952) 447-2182 for additional information.
