Charismatic Prayer
Strive Eagerly for the Greatest Spiritual Gifts

June 8 to 10, 2018

This exhortation from Saint Paul’s First Letter to the Corinthians to intentionally ask the Holy Spirit to equip us with the power and gifts that we need to carry out his work is often overlooked and set in opposition to the “more excellent way” of love.  During this retreat we will put our faith in these words of Saint Paul and prayerfully seek whatever spiritual gifts the Holy Spirit wishes to bestow on us that we may more boldly act in the power, name, and love of Jesus.

Benedictine Spirituality Retreat
Conversion of Life in the 21st Century
June 15 to 17, 2018

This retreat will focus on conversion of life.  Rooted deeply in the Good News of Jesus Christ, the understanding of conversion grows and develops with each generation. This weekend we will look deeply at the biblical roots of the call to conversion and how we as Christians might strive to live out conversion today—especially given the challenge set forth by our Holy Father Pope Francis, to focus upon the transformative power of the Gospels.
