Benedictine Spirituality
Growing in the Holy Spirit through the Rule of Saint Benedict

June 2 to 4, 2017

The Rule of Saint Benedict is inspired by the Holy Spirit and Saint Benedict identifies some specific areas in which the Holy Spirit is at work in the life of the Christian. Some examples are: in the formation of virtue, specifically humility; in the joy that comes with loving sacrifice, in discernment of God’s will, and in the life of prayer, especially extended prayer and prayer with tears. The Holy Spirit brings alive the holiness of God in us.

Charismatic Prayer Retreat boniface-hicks-ii
Charisms and The New Evangelization
June 16 to 18, 2017

In the Constitution on the Church, the Second Vatican Council declares that the “charisms, whether they be the more outstanding or the more simple and widely diffused, are to be received with thanksgiving and consolation for they are perfectly suited to and useful for the needs of the Church.” (Lumen Gentium #12). In this retreat we will reflect on the importance of the charisms (the charismatic gifts) for the building up of the Church and the New Evangelization. Each retreatant will also have the opportunity to receive prayer for personal growth in the charisms as part of the retreat

Building A Culture Of Mercy

June 23 to 25, 2017

In his post-Jubilee Year Apostolic Letter Misericordia et Misera, Pope Francis wrote, “We are called to build a culture of mercy…” and “It is the time of mercy…”. In doing this, he wants us to continue receiving God’s mercy and learning how to share it. In this retreat we will open ourselves more fully to an encounter with Jesus Christ in His Mercy and we will also reflect on ways that we can embody that mercy more fruitfully in our own lives.
