A spiritual retreat is a special time and space set aside to allow us to take stock of our lives spiritually, physically and emotionally in light of our God and Creator. The extended time and space (often 3 days and 2 nights) allows us to be refreshed and renewed.

A retreat turns ordinary time into graced time that can renew, challenge and redirect us. A change of pace allows us to become physically more still and cease our busyness for a while. In this deeper stillness, we begin to glimpse what is happening at the deeper levels of our being.

Such retreats usually integrate times for silence, solitude, meditation on scripture, personal reflection, journaling, prayer, listening to God and rest.
