The Rev. Larry Gillick, SJ, will present a retreat titled, Thou Shalt Not Have Strange Gods Before or Above You at St. Benedict Center, four miles north of Schuyler, on June 21 - 24, 2018.  This is a prayer-retreat, not a “lecture series” or “workshop”. Retreatants will receive encouragement and direction to allow the “imageless” God to meet, embrace and enliven the pray-er. Much space and time will be available for the “seeker” to be sought and found. We will begin with considering Jesus’ clearing of the temple in chapter two of John’s Gospel. Silence during these days will be a grace for listening. 

Jesuit Father Larry Gillick was ordained a priest in 1972. His former assignments include Spiritual Director for the younger Jesuits, Rector of the Jesuit Community at Creighton Prep in Omaha, and Superior of Mulumba House.  He currently serves as Director of the Deglman Center for Ignatian Spirituality at Creighton University.  He is a sought after retreat master around the country and spiritual director of students, faculty, alumni at Creighton University, and people from far and wide.

The retreat begins on Thursday, at 6:00 p.m. and ends on Sunday after Lunch.  The program fee is $ 80; room and board are additional.  For more information call St. Benedict Center 402-352-8819 or visit
