Silent Retreat -two new dates in 2018 sign up now

June 21- 24, 2018(new)   August 9-12,2018   September 20-23, 2018(new)

After many requests, Franciscan Retreats and Spirituality Center is offering additional Silent Retreats. While perhaps not for everybody, many individuals feel that observing silence during a weekend retreat removes outside distractions enabling them to relax and clearly focus on their relationship with the Lord. On our Silent Retreats we ask retreatants to refrain from talking to anyone except their confessor or spiritual director. Open to both men and women, we begin the silence after Thursday evening’s Night Prayer and end the silence after the last conference on the last day of the retreat. These retreats are a day longer (three nights) than our typical weekend retreats for those wanting to relax in the unhurried pace of the retreat center a bit longer than normal.
