Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest. Mark 6:31
Jesus often withdrew to a quiet place to nourish his spirit. He connected with the Father by going to a solitary place, rising early in the morning and spending entire nights in prayer. To follow the footsteps of Jesus, the retreat provides an opportunity to withdraw from our busy lives and to spend time alone with God. The conferences and spiritual practices during the retreat will enable us to enter into a personal and intimate relationship with God. A great opportunity for deep listening and to experience, “the incomparable treasure hidden in the world and in the human heart,” per the words of St. Clare of Assisi. Besides retreats we come together for One Day Prayer and Meditation sessions.

2016 Summer Weekend Retreat was held at Fairfield CA, in a gorgeous George Washington inspired architecture which is located in a 27-acre Monroe Ranch, nestled in the vineyards overlooking the Twin Sisters summit.

Separate activities for kids were held with the help of volunteers.
2015 Summer Retreat
Title : "Contemplation - Prayer of Silence"
Our 2015 retreat at Livermore Hills helped the people come together in one spirit and learn the art of contemplation. The sessions were tailored to bring us to the present moment and stay with the Presence. Traditional prayers, rituals and reflections were also practiced during the retreat providing the retreatants with varied spiritual experiences, though the main attention was to enable us to focus on the Center.
