IN HOUSE RETREATS
The spiritual weekend has times of liturgy, fraternal meals, silent prayer, manual service, a talk, and some recreation. Retreats usually share some of normal rhythm of Liturgy and life!
Each Thursday to Sunday, we celebrate a "Little Triduum." Thursday night, we intercede with Christ in Gethsemane, Friday there is silence and fasting until our prayer meal that commemorates the Jewish Shabbat. Saturday is a time of praise, rest, and study. Saturday evening, we celebrate the Resurrection with Byzantine vespers, a festive meal, and Israeli dances. Sunday morning, we have Byzantine lauds, adoration, mass with the parish, and a community lunch.
