Spend a weekend away from the pressing demands of academic life. Experience the joy of silence at Mt. Saviour Monastery in Pine City, N.Y. Through the gift of silence, we can listen more attentively to Christ’s desires for us. The risen Christ offers the disciples peace and joy. Can we receive this gift of inner peace in the midst of the many challenges we face on a daily basis? Can we respond with joy to the invitation which comes from the Risen Christ who calls us into discipleship? A future full of hope is restored when we take time to nurture our relationship with Christ.
This retreat is geared for seniors and graduate students. It will take place in silence, and it will include three brief talks:
The retreat will close with Sunday morning Mass in the Monastery Chapel, followed by a talking brunch when retreatants can share some graces received from the weekend. Suggestions for private prayer will be offered, and there will be an opportunity to meet individually with a spiritual director.
