DIRECTED/GUIDED RETREATS

DIRECTED RETREATS

A Directed Retreat is a one-on-one experience.
A director meets with the retreatant each day to reflect on the interior movements of the Spirit. Requests for a particular director are honored as far as possible. The Liturgy of the Eucharist is offered daily.

GUIDED RETREATS

A Guided Retreat is based on a theme and is usually led by one director who provides daily input to the group. Considerable time for personal prayer is included. While silence is usually observed, there may be some time or sharing. The Liturgy of the Eucharist is offered daily.

CONTEMPLATIVE TIME AWAY

The Center welcomes individuals seeking some days of quiet, solitude and prayer. Time is offered when the Center is not offering a retreat or it is not being used by a group. For the convenience of retreatants, the kitchenette on each floor is available for meal preparation. 

CDC/COVID

We are committed to following and adhering to all CDC and NJ COVID Guidelines.
Prior to your expected date of arrival, you will receive a communication from the center indicating what procedures and protocols that are currently in place.

It is becoming more and more clear to me that silence isn’t an emptiness. Silence enables us to hear the voice and whispers of the Divine within.
