7-Day Directed Silent Retreat

Maria DiBello, RSM, Mary Trainer, RSM and Bernadette Rudolph

June 17 - 24, 2022

Program is fully booked

In sustained stillness, silt has time to settle and the water becomes clear.  Rest can mend the tired mind and weary bones.  Like Elijah, you can at last hear God in the still, small whisper.  Knowing that others are around you, also in silence, provides a sustaining community.

You are invited to a week-long, silent retreat.  A daily session with a spiritual director and meals are provided.  You will have access to Cranaleith’s lovely campus; no other programs will be held during this week.

The retreat begins Friday, June 17, with dinner, and ends after brunch on Friday, June 24.

A 20% deposit is due at registration.  An invoice will be emailed to you for the balance, which is due on June 17 before the retreat begins.
