Retreat-Come to the Quiet Winter

Come to the Quiet, January 26 – February 2, 2018, Friday 7:30 pm to Friday 1:30 pm 

“Spending time in a place where you have prayed for so long has a profound effect. I am restored and renewed in this silence.” – previous Come to the Quiet retreatant

Entering the quiet – together

Deep in the stillness of winter, the team of spiritual directors at Spirit Center ready for the upcoming “Come to the Quiet” retreat. It is a time when the entire certified spiritual direction staff is on hand to journey with those seeking a peaceful time of reflection.

“It is a quiet place in a noisy world,” says Sister Lillian Englert, retreat facilitator and certified spiritual director. She helped create the “Come to the Quiet” retreat in response to requests for individually-directed retreat experiences.

While each person has an encounter with silence, they are not necessarily alone. “Everybody is scared of quiet,” explains Sister Lillian. “That’s why this retreat is in a group so there is support for one another.”

But she is quick to emphasize that each retreat experience is different from the others. Each person chooses an individual theme and goes at her own pace with her own spiritual director. A person’s retreat may also include faith sharing, creative expression, body prayer and ritual. “No two retreat experiences are alike,” she says.

Suggested donation: Full week, $535 single. Prices include all meals and lodging. For more information call the Spirit Center at 208-962-2000 or email retreats@stgertrudes.org.
