Individual Private Retreat (self-catered)

Maria DiBello, RSM and Mary Trainer, RSM

Flexible Dates

Some refer to this as a hermitage retreat because you have no contact with others.  The retreatant remains in solitude and chooses what to do/reflect on during the retreat time. You may wish to focus on Scripture or a spiritual book; you may choose to think through a problem or a decision you are facing.  You may choose to just rest and be still.

You bring and prepare your own food.  Cranaleith provides a galley kitchen with stove, microwave, fridge, coffee maker, pots and pans and dishes.
