The Society of Saint Edmund will be conducting a 5-Day Directed Retreat in the Ignatian tradition from Sunday June 21 to Friday June 26, 2020 at St. Anne’s Shrine in Isle La Motte.
Using principles from the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola, retreatants are invited to contemplate scripture passages in a silent environment, celebrate daily Eucharist and meet with a Spiritual Director each day. Spiritual Directors are specifically trained for this type of retreat and will serve as companions and co-discerners of the Spirit during the retreat.
Applicants should be comfortable maintaining an atmosphere of silence and be able to share their prayer experience with a Spiritual Director in a daily meeting of about forty-five minutes.
The retreat begins at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 21 and concludes with lunch on Friday, June 26. The cost is $525 per person which includes private room and all meals. A $250 non-refundable deposit is due with application which can be obtained by calling Nancy Dulude at (802) 928-3362 or via email at email@example.com.
Space is limited due to private bedroom accommodations and married couples will likely be assigned to separate cabins unless space availability permits otherwise.
The heart of the Society of Saint Edmund’s mission is serving where the need is greatest, a credo that has led us to four core ministries: Social Justice, Education, Spiritual Renewal and Pastoral Ministry. It is through these core ministries that we live out a faith-based life of service and make a real difference in people’s lives by bringing them closer to God.
