This five night retreat continues our tradition of offering a week-long silent retreat each summer. During the course of the retreat there will be opportunities for Eucharist, the Liturgy of the Hours, individual and common silent prayer and a presentation each day on a Franciscan theme. Saint Francis is perhaps the most beloved of saints. The Library of Congress claims to have more titles on Francis of Assisi than any other person who has ever lived! For many, Francis is known as the lover of animals and creation and his image adorns many a birdbath and garden; but he is so much more. Franciscan Spirituality offers a unique pathway to intimacy with God, and this pathway will be presented during this retreat. Lodging is in a private room with private bath. The price includes all meals beginning with supper on Sunday evening through lunch on Friday. Check-in time is 4:00pm to 6:00pm on the first day of the retreat. Offering: $400.00. For further information or to register for the retreat, please call the retreat house at 610-258-3053 ext. 0.
