An Advent Retreat or an evening of Advent Lessons & Carols invites us to hold as sacred and meaningful the season of Advent: a time of waiting and seeking, knowing and celebrating, with greater depth, the long-awaited Christ born among us.

The Grace Of Lent
Explore Lent as a time of asking for the grace that needs to enter, with Jesus, into the desert of our lives and that of our world. Find encouragement to change what needs to be changed and take up our cross with him, trusting in God's faithful promise of transformation and resurrection.

Sabbathsong: The Christ Who Calls Us
Sabbath is a time in which to honor one's commitment to serve in his name with enthusiasm. Especially suitable for those in ministry and those serving others through their personal and professional commitments.

Come, Follow Me
"Come, follow Me" is the call of Jesus to those who wish to become like him and share his profound trust in God. It is a time to reflect on the meaning of our discipleship with Christ and explore ways of responding to this invitation.

Listen With The Ear Of Your Heart
Based on Benedictine spirituality, this retreat is for all who wish to affirm a daily commitment to monastic values. Find out how this spirituality can be adapted to the everyday life of all Christians in their responsibilities of family, work and community.

The Companionship Of God
Through all the seasons of our lives, the compassionate love of God walks with us as friend and companion. The intent of this retreat is to recognize this companionship in a deeper way, to rejoice in it and to extend it to others.

Spirit, Come, Transform Us
A retreat in which to welcome the anointing, healing, comforting and strengthening presence of the Holy Spirit through prayer, music and the reaffirmation of being sent forth as disciples of Jesus in this age.

Lumen Christi
Embrace the Light of Christ in times of tragedy, grief and illness, while going forward in hope and trust to bring the Christ-Light to those around us. "I am the light of the world; those who follow me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." John 8:12

Lord, Make Me An Instrument Of Your Peace
A time of reflection, spiritual deepening and respite for pastoral care, hospice and health care professionals. A time to renew one's ability to extend God's healing love compassionately and wisely.
