Silent Retreat

Right Relationship with God and One Another: The Ten Commandments Rebooted

October 17th - 19th, 2014 at Koinonia Retreat Center

Join us for a silent retreat led by law professor Susan Stabile and Fr. Patrick Tobin, OP.

You may have memorized the Ten Commandments in grade school, but how much thought do you give to what they mean in your daily lives?
Many people read the Ten Commandments (if they read them at all) literally and narrowly. Read in a deeper fashion, however, they flesh out what it means to be in right relationship with God and with one another.
This silent retreat will afford us the opportunity to reflect on what each of the Ten Commandments means to our lives – individually and communally.

This retreat will be offer many Sacramental opportunities, with Mass on Friday night, Adoration on Saturday night, Mass on Sunday, and Confession offered throughout the weekend.
