Men’s October Silent Retreat – October 18-20, 2019
7:30 PM Friday- 1:00 PM Sunday
Silence The Icon Of God’s Mystery
“God speaks to each of us as he makes us, then walks with us silently out of the night.” Rainer Marie Rilke
Father Daniel Manger will be returning to Franciscan Retreats and Spirituality Center to present this retreat on God’s language of silence that accompanies us throughout our spiritual sojourn. Silence is God’s poetry and wisdom. We will explore the means we have to ‘hear with all our being’ the divine presence that is addressing our indigenous capacities to hear and be transformed by the Sophia of God, Christ the eternal Word.

- The liturgies were inspirational and the homilies added more meaning. I’m so impressed by how down-to-earth Father Jim and Brother Bob are as they relate to us
- The time here has been healing. Truly my spirit gives thanks to our God for this time
- The retreat conferences were excellent. So much food for thought and nourishment for the soul. Lots to take into prayer and on my daily faith walk.
- The blend of scheduled time to free time is just right. It allows me to reflect, refresh and recharge my soul to put a little bounce in my step!
