Annual Weekend Silent Retreat Overview
Every year Our Lady of Lourdes parishioners attend the Jesuit Ignatius House in Sandy Springs, Georgia for a silent retreat during the season of Lent. It’s voted “Best Way to Turn It All Off” by Atlanta magazine. Retreats consist of silent reflection, meditation and prayer and are based on the spiritual exercises of St. Ignatius.
A retreat director leads short, engaging spiritual teachings called exercises.
Retreats begin with Friday dinner and end with lunch on Sunday. You’ll enjoy delicious meals and a private room and bath. A $50 deposit is required, and additional donations are accepted. No one is turned away because of financial reasons.
What happens during the weekend retreat?
The retreat director presents a series of brief teachings, all with a powerful message of God’s love for you. The rest of the time is yours. You will value the silence and solitude so conducive to restful, spiritual reflection.
Why take a silent retreat?
It is an excellent way to renew and refresh your faith.
