PREACHED RETREATS

Weekend retreats facilitated by the Redemptorist Team, ordinarily referred to as the Weekend Silent Preached Retreat, are scheduled for men or for women, the theme of which changes on an annual basis. 

 

Although many parishes have scheduled to attend retreats on specific weekends as a group, individuals or groups from any parish are free to choose to attend a retreat on any of the indicated weekends.

 

The silent weekend preached retreat offers time for private prayer and rest, group meditation, Spiritual Conferences, daily Eucharist, an opportunity for the Sacrament of Reconciliation, spiritual consultation, Adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament, Devotion to Our Mother of Perpetual Help, Lectio Divina, and enjoying the beautiful grounds.

OUR ANNUAL THEME

The 2020-21 theme and description for the weekend silent preached retreats is "Living in a Time of Plentiful Redemption" 

 

Recent times have underscored our ongoing need to find a sense of equilibrium in our lives.  Our sense of well-being has been shaken by the health pandemic, economic uncertainty, and issues surrounding equality and justice for all.  We continue to deal with our own personal and interpersonal challenges. Questions around the presence of God and how God is speaking to us surface again and again.

 

The Good News is that we have a God of all seasons. God continues to reveal and be revealed to the person of faith.  It is God’s Son who offers to us the gift of plentiful redemption which, remarkably, is often more present in times of uncertainty and unrest. We need to tap into that presence as individuals and as members of a faith community.

 

Our retreat theme develops this idea through a variety of perspectives.  In prayer we open our lives to God and allow God to open God’s presence to us through more transparent communication. By learning to trust we allow God’s Word to be more fully implanted in our lives as it was in the life of Mary the Mother of God so we can see God as the source of strength even when things around us are challenging. We do not have to face life’s challenges alone as we live as a member of a faith community. We are social beings and we learn lessons of redemption on a personal as well as communal level. Finally, evangelization helps us incorporate the Good News and then be Good News to others, especially those burdened by feeling the human condition of loss, grief, and hopelessness.

Plentiful redemption is not a concept to be looked for after our life has ended.  Plentiful redemption is alive at this very moment.  When we come to realize this gift we can more easily face today with a sense of gratitude and joyfulness so we can, in turn, live and, in a sense, be the Good News.
