Seeking Groundedness: The Benedictine Value of Humility

July 14, 2023 @ 4:00 pm – July 16, 2023 @ 2:00 pm

Retreat leader: Br. Cyprian Langlois, OSB

Reflections on the Benedictine value of humility as a way to understand humility as self-transcendence. Humility opens the door to the hearts of others and to the heart of God—moving us beyond self-centeredness.



Retreats include three conferences, adoration, and the sacrament of Reconciliation, with silence between sessions and at meals. Private spiritual direction will be available throughout the weekend, along with liturgies with the monastic community. The retreat begins on Friday with evening prayer at 5:15 and concludes after lunch on Sunday.


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.
