5-Day Directed Retreat: June 20-25, 2021
The Society of St. Edmund will be conducting a 5-Day Directed Retreat in the Ignatian tradition from Sunday, June 20 to Friday, June 25, 2021 at St. Anne’s Shrine in Isle La Motte. Using principles from the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola, retreatants are invited to contemplate scripture passages in a silent environment, celebrate daily Eucharist and meet with a Spiritual Director each day. Spiritual Directors are specifically trained for this type of retreat and will serve as companions and co-discerners of the Spirit during the retreat. Applicants should be comfortable maintaining an atmosphere of silence and be able to share their prayer experience with a Spiritual Director in a daily meeting of about forty-five minutes. The retreat begins at 7:00 pm on Sunday, June 20 and concludes with lunch on Friday, June 25. The cost is $525 per person which includes a private room and all meals. A $250 non-refundable deposit is due with application which can be obtained by calling Nancy Dulude at (802) 928-3362 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Space is limited due to private bedroom accommodations and married couples will likely be assigned to separate cabins unless space availability permits otherwise. Please note all participants are required to follow the State of Vermont COVID-19 guidelines regarding travel protocols for fully vaccinated and non-vaccinated persons.
