Retreats — June, July, and October

Starts: Saturday, June 16th 2018 at 12:01 am
Ends: Sunday, October 14th 2018 at 12:01 am

Have you ever considered taking time away from the busyness of your ordinary life to spend an extended time in prayer and reflection? One way to do this is during a “Directed Retreat.” This sort of retreat provides quiet space for prayer as well as time for meeting each day with a spiritual director. This retreat may extend over a weekend, several days or a full week.

The Sisters of Notre Dame invite you to join them this summer or autumn for some days of private or directed retreat. The retreats typically begin around 5:00 pm on the first day and end at breakfast on the last day. Sisters of Notre Dame will be “retreating” alongside you and will join their prayer to yours.  You may choose a 3-day option or the full week.

You will spend the days at Lial Renewal Center where God’s beauty in nature can lure you to greater union and generosity. You would have a private room, all meals provided, and the opportunity to meet daily with a spiritual director who can listen attentively to your soul’s desires and help you discern God’s action in your life.

If this is just what you’ve been looking for, click on the registration at the top of the screen. The cost is $85/day which includes spiritual direction, housing and meals.  A $100 non-refundable deposit holds your place in the retreat. If you have questions, call 419-877-0432 to talk with Sr. Diane Pfahler.

We welcome you to retreat to Lial Renewal Center!
