Summer Retreats

Summer Guided Retreat

When the soul longs and the heart sings!”

Sunday, June 12th – Saturday June 18th, 2022
The sickness of our times is ‘forgetting’ who we are. This retreat will inspire remembering the truth of who we are and to whom we belong. Carmel Boyle will guide this retreat, offering an invitation to attune our hearts for deeper relationship with the Holy One and contemplate our soul’s longing for the Great Mystery.

Carmel offers an experience of praying together, with gentle guidance, a sacred contemplative space, pondering questions, inspiring stories, and her unique original sacred songs.  Themes for the retreat are inspired by the Celtic and Christian Mystical Traditions. Her songs are the basis of her presentations and incapsulate her spiritual message. Participants will be invited to journey with Irish saints and mystical women.

2022 Summer Preached Retreat

“Surprised by Hope” - THIS RETREAT IS FULL

Sunday, June 19th – Saturday June 25th, 2022.
There is a scarcity of hope in our world, country and the churches. This retreat will bring to us the teachings and experiences of the saints and mystics of yesterday and today. They will guide us through these challenging times. The women and men of our tradition were anchored in a hope that was rooted in a radical faith.   These wisdom figures will lead us into the heart of God where we find hope because even if we do not know what the future will bring, we will discover once again WHO holds the future.
