Silent Guided- Directed Retreats at Villa

    Our silent directed retreats are offered at Villa Madonna for groups of 20 - 30. Even though you are with others, you live your own rhythm for prayer, rest and relaxation. We spend most of the day in silence and with periods of guided input, simply paying attention to God. The only conversation, beyond the opening and closing sessions, is during scheduled meetings with a spiritual director. During that time, you listen together for how God's Spirit is leading you in prayer and life.


Our guided directed retreats are Ignatian in approach in that scripture is usually the primary focus for prayer, especially prayer over the life of Christ. If you are sensing God's invitation to "come away for awhile", a directed retreat may be for you.
Currently, we are offering two retreats.
