A Lenten Contemplative Retreat: An Experience of Silence
March 3-4, 2016 – Marriottsville, MD
The 40 days of Lent present us with an opportunity to turn inward, to listen deeply to the whispers of God, to heed the tug of the Holy Spirit upon our hearts. Take a moment this Lent—in these cold months of winter—to turn to God in silence and learn how the Holy Spirit is at work in the quiet of our prayer.
Bon Secours Young Adults, in collaboration with St. Ignatius Catholic Church Baltimore’s young adult community, invites those in their 20s and 30s to a contemplative retreat at the Bon Secours Retreat and Conference Center in Marriottsville, MD. Silence is encouraged throughout the retreat experience, and spiritual direction—as well as reflections and prayerful exercises—will be offered.
For those interested in an overnight experience, join us for dinner on Friday, March 3 at 6 PM, followed by prayer and an invitation to silence. The price for the overnight retreat is $50, with 4 meals included.
For those interested in a daylong experience, join us for breakfast on Saturday, March 4 at 8 AM. A short reflection, spiritual direction and other reflective offerings will follow. The price for the day is $20, with 3 meals included.
For both overnight and daylong retreatants, the silence will be broken with dinner and a social at 5 PM, with the retreat ending by 7:30 PM.
Come reflect on the importance of silence in your spiritual life. Sign up: bonsecoursyoungadults.org/event-registration
