A Day of Reflection for Adults
Program Date: January 16, 2023 9:00 am to 3:00 pm
Program Cost: $65.00 (includes Dinner)
Join us in a day focused on prayer, song, and sacred scripture that grounds our commitment to the Beloved Community in a faith that looks upon the world with open eyes, seeing God's grace. The work of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. continues with us. Even in a divided world, we trust that shared experience will lead to what Ignatius called "God's deepening life in us."
Check-in starts at 8:30 am with a continental breakfast including coffee, tea, juice and fresh fruit and pastries. The day will include a few talks, Mass, a delicious, freshly made lunch with salad, soup, an entrée and dessert.
All activities are optional, but we do ask everyone to respect the quiet of the retreat house for everyone to have the opportunity to read, rest, and reflect in the quiet.
You will have time to explore our 80 acres and almost 60k square feet of interior space. Bellarmine has two libraries, a resource center, two chapels, and many other common areas. Outdoor spaces include various walking trails, several prayer gardens, a gazebo, stations of the cross, as well as a few patios and outdoor chairs and benches.
