“Silence is not simply the absence of noise. It is a necessary condition for discernment and reflection, for meditation and prayer, and for “welcoming the word” into our minds and hearts.”

Days of Recollection Retreats

In addition to our Ignatian Silent Retreat Schedule,we offer regularly scheduled days of rest and recollection. Beginning at 10am and ending at 3pm, these day-long retreats consist of two conferences and Mass as well as built in time for Adoration and an opportunity for Confession. Lunch is provided. There is no set cost for these retreats.  Rather, we invite retreatants to prayerfully make a donation to Broom Tree. It is through these gifts that Broom Tree remains available and accessible to all.  Space is limited.
