Book a Retreat
“Come away by yourselves to a lonely place, and rest a while.” (Mark 6:31)
The Lord Jesus left the clamoring crowds and even his own apostles and turned to his Father in silence to teach us by example that there are times in our lives when we need to listen to the voice of God in silence who says, "Be still and know that I am God" (Psalm 46:10). Retreat from life and come away to experience the loving presence of your God.
OLCC's Silent Retreats include Healing Retreats, Spiritual Exercises Retreats, Marian Devotion, and Heart of Jesus Retreats. These retreats offer a calm and peaceful vacation from the chaos of everyday life, providing time and space to experience the person of Jesus through Scripture and the Sacraments.
WHY A SILENT RETREAT?
The Eternal Father "always speaks his Word eternal silence, and in silence must It be heard by the soul." -St John of the Cross. Silence is the atmosphere where intimate prayer with God is fostered. Retreats offered at Our Lady of Corpus Christi provide the opportunity to pursue this life long journey of deep prayer.
Everything is geared toward an encounter with the One who speaks his Word in silence. The accommodations are private, hotel-style rooms with private bath. The retreatants are given ample time for sleep. Unlike some very active retreats, they will not need a period of time to recover after the weekend. They are served sumptuous meals and snacks are available.
Weekend retreats are $100 per night. Contact us for eight day retreat costs. Scholarships may be available for those who qualify.
