Silent Directed Retreat I

“The retreat was one of the most restorative breaks I've ever given myself.”

- Retreat Participant

This silent directed retreat provides an opportunity to meet daily with one’s spiritual director, morning prayer with the Racine Dominican community, and evening prayer with the retreat group.  Solitude, nature, and silence enhance these sacred days.

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


Cost of $485 includes $50 non-refundable deposit, spiritual direction, overnight accommodations, and meals.
