Women are welcome to make a private retreat in our retreat center. Please

One suggestion: "A Day in the Desert"
This is a free opportunity for single women over 17 to have an overnight
and day of complete quiet for prayer and reflection with our
community. You are invited to join the sisters in singing the Liturgy of the
Hours, and if you would like, there will also be opportunities during the day to
speak one-on-one with a sister.
Upcoming overnights: TBA Please contact us.
