The Need for Retreats
Today the emphasis on achievement is stressful and the pace of life moves ever more quickly. People are pressurised on every side to rush from one deadline to another In our modern society, therefore, many people value time set aside to enter more deeply into the practice of the presence of God, and to seek to grasp the eternal realities.
A Retreat is a pause for thought and a chance to focus on God. Time spent in quiet surroundings away from daily pressures helps a person to wait upon God and to be refreshed and renewed in and for His service.
Learning about the use of silence and meditation in everyday life enables the individual to live closer to God and not be overwhelmed by the stress our society seeks to impose on him or her.
