Silent Retreat

Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest awhile.

Mark 6:31


A silent retreat is a unique time for participants to turn all distractions off. Many experiences have said they have cultivated greater awareness. They come back to being fully aware; in the moment, right here, right now.

Do you ever find your mind wandering to think about the past or the future while speaking to another person? Or just have all kinds of unrelated thoughts distract you from the conversation at hand? 

Our minds are busy, and it’s more urgent than ever that we intentionally find ways to focus our attention by taking time away from all the doing in our lives.

ECRC’s Silent Retreat is a time to disconnect from the world and the noise of life to find God in the silence. The retreat is led by Sisters, Priests, Seminarians, and lay people. Those in attendance have the opportunity for one-on-one spiritual direction, as well as time for guided meditation, adoration, and prayer. Confessions and Mass are available throughout the weekend. Come and find rest in the Lord as you encounter Him in the silence.
