What is a Retreat?

Retreat House

It’s a time out or a pause in your regular day-to-day activities and responsibilities. Time to stop, look, listen to God and to examine your relationship with God.

The retreats at OLC Retreat House are organized with enough flexibility to help you deepen your faith in your own way. Although some retreat formats vary, there is usually a central theme presented and carried through a series of programs and activities.

There is time for solitude and meditation and an opportunity for rest, relaxation, and friendship. It is a time for prayer and renewal, as well as for learning. A well-planned mix of various liturgies, workshops, and free time helps develop the theme and provides something to bring home with you when you leave Our Lady of Consolation Retreat House.

Behold I make all things new. – Revelations 21:5
