St. Luke’s and St. Raphael’s Knights of Columbus, in collaboration with St. Raphael’s Office of Life Long Faith Formation, are sponsoring this silent retreat weekend for Catholic men. It starts Friday May 19 at about 5 PM and closes Sunday May 21 around noon.The Theme is “God’s Creation and Our Place in it.” Our own Father Peter Murray, S.J., Parochial Vicar at St. Raphael the Archangel, will lead the retreat. He will explain and draw on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola. This will be a weekend of prayer, listening and contemplation. Mass is scheduled on Sunday. There will be (optional) time for familiar devotions, personal prayers, reflections and meetings with Father.
Avila is a unique retreat environment — a peaceful and reflective setting for meditation and prayerful walks around the wooded landscape. The $185 cost for the three-day retreat includes an overnight room for two nights, dinners, breakfasts and lunches.
