Scheduled Retreats

“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.”

Archbishop Robert J. Carlson

October 11-13, 2024 | Undone: A Healing Retreat

Directed by Father Scott Traynor, Director of Broom Tree Retreat Center, in cooperation with The Lourdes Center

Jesus desires to bring healing and restored wholeness to every person. Healing is central to Jesus’ life and mission. By our own sin or the sufferings of the human experience, our hearts can easily become wounded or distant from God, who alone can offer true restoration. Under the patronage of Our Lady, Undoer of Knots, this retreat will assist participants in becoming aware of Jesus’ desire to bring restoration in their lives and will offer opportunities to encounter His healing grace.

Conferences for the retreat will focus on the power of Jesus to heal in mind, body and spirit, and will offer participants practical ways to invite that grace into their own lives. A collaboration of Broom Tree Retreat Center and The Lourdes Center, this retreat will offer time for individual spiritual direction as well as one-on-one discussion with licensed counselors.

Open to men and women age 18 and older, the retreat begins on Friday evening and ends on Sunday after lunch.  Broom Tree sponsored retreats are run by donation. The value of the retreat is $275/person.  We ask that you prayerfully consider your gift.
