If life is to be understood as a kind of journey, then the ancient image of pilgrimage helps us to conceive of the journey as a sacred one. As couples, we share that sacred journey with an intimate other: a person with whom we share our deepest selves, even as the other helps us to discover who God has created us to be.
We invite you to a time and space of retreat from the busyness of everyday life, which often serves to distract us from some of the most pressing questions that face us. What kind of person shall I be? What kind of relationship do I desire? What do I find most life-giving in our relationship? What have I learned about myself in loving my partner? What have I found challenging in our life? How do I seek to grow? What kind of journey do we find ourselves on, and where are we headed?
This is a silent retreat. Guests are expected to maintain a sacred silence throughout the retreat, including at meals, unless otherwise noted.
