"May we try to listen and be silent in order to make space for the beauty of God" `Pope Francis
Come away from the busyness of life for a silent retreat based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola.
Amid the peaceful, beautiful surroundings of the Marytown Retreat Center and National Shrine of St. Maximilian Kolbe, you will have the refreshing opportunity to pray, to learn about yourself, to deepen your knowledge of the Scriptures and the Catholic faith, to seek God's will for your life, and to experience the tremendous, personal love that Jesus Christ has for you.
What is included in the retreat?
Sacrament of Reconciliation
Time for personal prayer
What is included with my registration fee?
The fee includes a spacious room with private bath, individually controlled heating and air conditioning, towels, linens, snacks, meals, and retreat materials.
May I bring my children on this retreat?
The silence your head and heart need to fully participate in this retreat won't be possible if you're concerned about little ones running around. Please give friends and family the opportunity to deepen their relationship with your children while you enjoy a weekend away. However, nursing infants are welcome!
You must be at least 18 years of age to attend this retreat.
Will Marytown accommodate my special dietary needs?
If you are gluten free, Marytown will prepare a plain baked meat or fish entree for you. In addition, a full salad bar is available.
If you are vegetarian, the buffet always includes vegetables and starches in addition to the salad bar.
You are welcome to bring your own food if needed. There is a refrigerator in the kitchen that we are allowed to use.
How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
