Desert Day: A Quiet Time Away

Thursday, March 5, 2020

9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

St. Scholastica Monastery

“I will lead her into the desert, and speak tenderly to her there…” (Hosea 2:14). In this beautiful Scripture passage, God is speaking to the nation of Israel, beckoning them back to the heart of God. Come to the Monastery for a day of personal renewal. In places of quiet like the desert, we can more clearly hear the voice of God, calling us to come home, to remember to whom we belong. We all need time away for this kind of rest and renewal! There is no “agenda” for this day other than your own time for quiet prayer, reflection, reading, walking, resting, and meeting with a spiritual director, if desired. A group prayer begins and ends the day.

Free will offerings for the day are accepted.  Optional lunch with the Sisters is $10.  Optional overnight stay is $70.
