Why Go On Retreat?
The purpose of a retreat is to foster an ongoing process of prayerful listening and responding to the Spirit of God in the contemporary world. It is an invitation “To come aside and rest awhile” (Mark 6:31).
A retreat is:
- A time away from one’s busy world
- A time to re-evaluate priorities
- A time of quiet, solitude and space
- A time to listen and to grow
Mount St. Francis Retreat Centre is one of those special spaces that calls forth in silence the secrets of the soul. We welcome people of all faiths.
