We invite you to join us for one retreat or consider creating an ongoing rhythm of solitude retreats. We will prepare the space so you can just come and be with God, the only One who can show you how to live freely and lightly.

DESCRIPTION OF A TYPICAL RETREAT DAY
Our retreat in July will have a similar feel to our usual day long retreats just in a new location. You will arrive the night before the retreat and get settled on your own in your private room/bath. We suggest stopping on the way into town for dinner. Once you are checked in at the front desk, you are welcome to rest or enjoy the retreat center on your own. If it’s still light out, step out the back door and take a walk along the beach.
Then the next morning, enjoy breakfast on your own in the dining room before we begin our day of guided retreat together in our meeting room. During each retreat day, we will gather at the startof our time to prepare our hearts for what God might have for us and to explain several guided solitude options. You can decide to follow the guided solitude options or follow your own promptings from God. We will come back together at the end of the day for conversation about your experience. Lunch, snacks, beverages and optional experience materials will be provided. Optional spiritual direction sessions will also be available.
All retreats are day-long experiences beginning at 8:45am and ending at 4:45pm. Registration will begin at 8:15am. Our Retreats in July will include retreat materials, snacks, beverages and lunch the day of your retreat. If you would like to hear about options as a commuter please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Retreats in July 2017 will be held at the beautiful campus of Siena Retreat Center in Racine Wisconsin. The moment you enter the property you will easily let go of the distractions of everyday life.

(Retreats after July will be back at St. Mary of the Lake in Mundelein, IL.)
