Jesus calls all people, and each of us in particular, to join him in building his kingdom. This day of reflection will give an opportunity to refresh our ears to what Jesus sounds like and to renew our hearts to respond to his call.
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.
