Silent Advent Retreat
Dec 2 @ 4:00 pm – Dec 4 @ 2:00 pm

Retreat Leaders: Fr. Roger Schmit, OSB, and Abbey Guest Center staff

Advent is a time of waiting and anticipation. Set aside time, like Mary, to ponder in your own hearts the Nativity of Our Lord. In the silence, allow the real presence of Christ dwelling within you to comfort and awaken your own spirit. The Friday night conference will prepare you with ways to use the silence well. Spiritual direction will be available as well as Eucharistic Adoration.

Pricing:
$200 a person.

Retreat costs includes all the meals, a private room with its own bathroom and shower, linen and towels, retreat director fee, handouts and any private spiritual direction time. Prices are set to cover these costs. Anyone unable to pay the suggested amounts may leave whatever offering they can afford.


All retreats include prayer with monastic community and Lectio Divina.
We offer weekend Confirmation Retreats lead by our staff. To get more information on what we offer, costs and availability, email us with your request.
