November 4 - November 6, 2022
Theme: Sharing Silence. This retreat is for anyone who longs to open to the divine presence through uninterrupted silence. Together we will rest in the spacious stillness of retreat, opening to the Spirit through the gathered community, the autumn beauty and the sacred silence. After an introduction to the practice of silent retreat on Friday evening, we will share the gift of silence until Sunday morning.
Leader: Nat Reid is the director of Dayspring Silent Retreat Center and has been involved with the Church of the Saviour and its ministries for over 20 years.
Weekend retreats run Friday dinner through Sunday lunch. The silence begins Friday night after dinner when the leader opens the retreat and introduces the theme. The leader usually offers brief reflections with morning and evening prayers on Saturday. The silence ends after breakfast Sunday morning with a time of sharing and worship, followed by lunch and departure.
You must be fully vaccinated against the coronavirus in order to attend weekend retreats. We are requiring that masks be worn indoors except when dining or in your personal room.
