Contemplative & Quiet Retreats

In the busyness of life, it is important to get away to rest or find some time for intentional renewal. We believe that going on a retreat is an intentional way of taking time away from the demands of daily life to tune in to God as we carve out time and space for Him. Below are a variety of retreats designed especially for this purpose of encountering God individually and also communally with one another.
