Spiritual Retreats

The mission of the Spiritual Life Center at Maryvale Convent is to provide opportunities for spiritual growth and deepening of one’s relationship with God, self, and others.

DIRECTED RETREAT

A directed retreat is a silent retreat which focuses on the personal prayer of an individual and the unique experience of God in the life of the person. Each day the retreat participant meets with the retreat director to reflect on one’s prayer and to receive material for further prayer.

PRIVATE RETREAT

This retreat allows a person time alone in a peaceful and prayerful atmosphere.

IGNATIAN RETREAT

The Ignatian Retreat is steeped in the Gospels and is based in the spirituality of St. Ignatius of Loyola. This is a silent retreat where one is able to meet Jesus in the experiences of Jesus’ own life. Conferences and individual direction are part of the retreat.

WOMEN’S RETREAT

During this retreat, we will prayerfully reflect on God’s love for us and the nature of love as presented to us in the Scriptures, the lives of saints and one’s own personal life.

Women’s Retreat

The theme of this year’s Women’s Retreat is “Tending One’s Soul: God’s Spiritual Garden.”

The imagery of a garden is used in various ways throughout scripture to speak of relationship with God, spiritual growth, and conversion. Jesus often used garden imagery to teach a gospel lesson. This retreat weekend will give participants time to cultivate the fruits of one’s own spiritual garden.

Retreat dates:

March 29 – 31, 2019

July 19 – 21, 2019
