This day is your time to explore life enriching values and practices of Benedictine spirituality, to sit with your reflections in prayerful silence; to ponder God’s desire for your love and wellbeing; to share your gleanings; to break bread together and receive one another as Christ receives you.
“Whatever good work you begin to do, beg of God with most earnest prayer to perfect it.”
― Benedict of Nursia
This day apart is intended to introduce retreatants to the contribution of Benedictine values in contemporary life and will specifically focus on prayer and awareness of God in the ordinary events of each day.
