Your Heavenly Father’s Love in the Silence

When was the last time you spent some alone time with your Dad—God the Father? It's time to be alone with God.

The noise, hustle, and mess of life are huge distractions from the still small voice of God. He is always there, loving you and speaking to you, but you forget to listen.

Come on an Alone with God Retreat so you can step away from the intensity of daily life and rediscover your Father’s love in the silence. This four-day silent retreat includes inspiring conferences to deepen your knowledge of God, spiritual direction for your journey of faith, abundant graces given through the sacraments, and rest.
