Is the retreat truly “silent” and why is this important?

Yes, on the first evening, following orientation and dinner, you will be asked to move into silent mode and silence will be ended on the last morning beginning with singing. There will be an oral critique of the retreat also on the last morning. Cell phones will be placed on airplane mode and used in emergencies only. Silence is an important priority because in these quiet moments we are better able to encounter God more deeply and intimately. Silence opens the ears of our heart to hear and receive what the noise of life stifles.
