Solitude Day (self-catered)
Maria DiBello, RSM, Bernadette Rudolph and Mary Trainer, RSM
This registration is for a single onsite day retreat at Cranaleith. You will have access to a private room as well as the beautiful grounds of Cranaleith.
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 also have the option of meeting with a spiritual director. Please request that on the interest form and be aware that a donation for this service is requested. If you are unable to pay, please request financial assistance.
You bring and prepare your own food. Cranaleith provides a galley kitchen with stove, microwave, fridge, coffee maker, pots and pans and dishes.
