Retreat Work

In today’s world, it seems to be getting more difficult to find time to pray, to withdraw from the busy-ness of life in order to be alone with God.  Assisting lay people in this challenging aim is a ministry the Sisters provide on occasion.  This can take the form of being guest speakers for part of an organization’s retreat or leading a retreat for youth or adults.

The Sisters offer days of recollection for our Auxiliary members during Advent and Lent.  Taking a day to soak in the prayerful atmosphere of the Convent and prepare for Our Lord’s birth or for the Paschal Mystery is a true spiritual gift.

Throughout the year, the Sisters host various discernment retreats or weekends for young women to experience Convent life.  During these weekends, young women spend time with the Sisters, praying, working, and visiting with us to discover what a life dedicated to Christ is all about.  Whether the individual ends up pursuing a call to the religious life, all who come say they benefit from the experience.
