Practitioners of Silence

We live in a noisy and bustling society that generally misunderstands, devalues, and sometimes even fears silence. Drawing from various sources of inspiration as our guide, this retreat will explore how the careful cultivation and practice of silence and restraint of speech may improve the quality of our lives and the lives of those around us.

Retreat master: Father Jeffrey Nyardy, O.S.B., earned a master of divinity degree from Saint Vincent Seminary. His service at Saint Vincent Archabbey includes member of the faculty and staff of Benedictine Priory and Benedictine Military High School, Savannah, Georgia. He has also served as junior master of the monastic community and director of solemnly professed Benedictine and visiting religious seminarians.

Check-in: 3 to 5:30 p.m., Leander Hall. Retreat ends at 1 p.m. Sunday.
