AGC Silent Retreat Weekend: Sabbath Rest & Benedictine Peace

October 6, 2023 @ 4:00 pm – October 8, 2023 @ 2:00 pm

Retreat leader: Br Mark Nelson, OSB

In the prologue to the Rule, St. Benedict invites his readers to “seek after peace”. Amidst the busyness of life, this silent retreat explores the peace that arises from remembering the Sabbath and keeping it holy. Meditations on the Sabbath in Sacred Scripture will prepare our hearts for a prayerful encounter with the One who invites us to rest in his loving presence.



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.
