Retreat – Deirdre Ni Chinneide

Silent Retreat Retreat

Praying – “It doesn’t have to be the blue iris, it could be weeds in a vacant lot, or a few small stones; just pay attention, then patch a few words together and don’t try to make them elaborate, this isn’t a contest but the doorway into thanks, and a silence in which another voice may speak.” Mary Oliver

During this retreat we will explore how silence, music, poetry and scripture offer a deep listening and creative response to prayer. Our time together brings hope and direction in our pilgrim path of companionship and presence with God.
