This retreat for men offers many useful tools for growing into that freedom which we have already received in our baptism; these spiritual tools will be explained and practiced during the weekend. The retreat will assist you, whatever your stage in life, to learn the fine art of responding deeply to God’s call. Fr. Thomas Leitner, OSB, Teresa Monaghen, AO, Br. August Schaefer, OSB, and a team of consecrated life members will present various aspects of discernment, share life stories and give a chance for personal input and reflection. The schedule will include silence, time for prayer, Mass, Confession, fellowship, brief conferences, and spiritual direction with retreat directors.
