King’s House will again offer a 6-day directed retreat. Each day, besides the celebration of the Eucharist, the retreatant meets with a director to talk about his or her personal journey and experience of God. The rest of the time is spent in solitude and silence relaxing, praying, reading and reflecting. In the extended time of quiet, one often moves into a deeper listening to God and awareness of God’s presence and action in life. The experience can clarify your dreams, purify your ambitions, expose your foolishness and refresh your life.
A directed retreat enables people to spend uninterrupted hours exploring the movement of God in their lives. The spiritual directors are companions, helping retreatants enter into this spiritual journey and listen to their hearts with new openness to God’s will. It calls for receptivity to the movements of God’s Spirit and capacity and willingness to discuss one’s prayer with the director. The director gives guidance for prayer in response to your individual needs, making suggestions from scripture or other resources that may be helpful.
Directors: Fr. Jim Deegan, OMI, Sr. Joanne Dehmer, SSND,
Sr. Brenda Rose Szegedy, OSF, Fr. Ron LaFramboise, OMI,
and Fr. Lon Konold, OMI. (Closer to the retreat, applicants will be sent a questionnaire and response form to gather information for making the decision about your director.)
