Awakening to the Depths

“I hold the experiences I have had at Siena in my heart. My spiritual awakening continues. I never know where the path will take me next, but I know my life will be enriched as it has been at Siena Retreat Center.”

- Retreat Participant

This year’s retreat will focus on “Companions on the Journey,” through silence, meeting daily with a spiritual director, morning and evening gatherings for prayer and other evening options.  Come and join us this week to listen attentively to the music of life and to the still small voice of the Holy One.

The retreat begins at 3:30pm on Sunday and concludes with the noon meal on Saturday.
