Retreat in Daily Life (RIDL) is a 30 week retreat based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. During the course of 30 weeks -- from October through April -- retreatants live their commitment to God, to themselves and to their fellow participants by following the steps of this prayer journey. Each retreatant commits to these three experiences:
Daily private prayer, which includes Scripture, reflection, and journaling.
Weekly small group meetings in which participants share their prayer exerpiences with each other. Groups are facilitated by a certified spiritual director.
Twice monthly individual spiritual direction.
Our October, 2017 through April, 2018 session is accepting registrants now. Interviews will take place through August 31. The interview process is an opportunity for you to learn more about the retreat, to discern with a facilitator whether or not you are ready to make the retreat at this time, and to being prayer practices that prepare a person for the retreat experience.
If you are interested in this retreat, which will be offered at St. Scholastica Monastery and in northwest Arkansas, please call or email one of the contact people for your area as soon as possible.
