A Day of Silence with the Masters
August 12, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm
A Day of Silence with the Masters is a series of silent outdoor retreats that introduces participants to the writings and life of one saint or master in the Catholic tradition. This one will focus on Julian of Norwich, an English Christian mystic and theologian. The day begins with an introduction to the saint/master and an opening prayer or reading. Participants are then invited to silently move among outdoor stations to reflect on posted readings from the saint/master. In the afternoon, participants gather for midday prayer and discussion and then return to silence until 3:30 p.m. All are invited to attend the regular 4 p.m. Mass at St. John Neumann Church if desired. Beverages are provided, but participants should bring their own lunch. The series continues on October 14, dedicated to St. Bernard of Clairvaux.
