Retreats are times of prayer that can be individual or group, formal or informal. They can also take on a variety of formats, including:
Directed Prayer Retreat: the individual or group gathers to focus on a particular scripture theme or prayer method. Sister acts as companion or leader, taking the individual or group through the movements of this retreat.
Preached Retreat: Sister acts as presenter and speaks to the subject, leading the group into a prayerful experience of the theme
Private Directed Retreat: An individually planned retreat for those seeking silence and solitude. This retreat focuses on the person's desire to deepen their relationship with God. Sister serves as a daily contact for guidance and direction.
Themes for retreats can be set by the group or individual. Some themes for retreats that Sister has led in the past include:
Couples Way to God
Walking with God Through 12-Step
Single Parents' Way to Partner with God
Powerless for God
Mothers and Daughters Share Faith
