Overnight, Silent, Directed Retreat, Dec. 17-18, 2021

Mary Elizabeth Looby, GNSH

December 17 - 18, 2021

Everyone is welcome at Cranaleith!  Request financial assistance here.

Often life is so full, we cannot hear God.  Or maybe we are busy, busy, busy and our spirits need some Sabbath rest.  What might happen if you took twenty-four hours to enter into the quiet and stillness with God?   Allow yourself the opportunity for spiritual renewal.

The retreat begins at 7 p.m. on Friday with a communal prayer service.  You will have time to meet with an experienced spiritual director who will listen to you and guide you in making the most of this sacred time with God. The rest of the evening and the next day are yours in silence.  All three meals on Saturday are included; breakfast and lunch will be eaten in silence and dinner includes conversation with others on the retreat. Another communal prayer services wraps up the retreat.  The number of spaces for this retreat is limited to 10; register soon!
