"No one ever starved to death because they didn't have time to eat," notes Father Jacques Philippe in his book about prayer: Time for God. But many of us presume we have no time for prayer. Now's the time to take the time!
FEBRUARY 24-26, 2017
The next silent retreat, following the same format as last year, will be held February 24-26 of 2017. Please note that this is the weekend before Mardi Gras. You are being asked to make a sacrifice here––however, the retreat will end by midday Sunday, the 26th, allowing ample time to return to the city for evening parades.
The silent retreat is open to everyone, students and non-students alike.
The registration fee covers the majority of the cost of lodging for two nights and 5 meals. Additional costs are absorbed by Tulane Catholic thanks to generous donors. Rooms are double rooms, $90 per person.*** Single rooms are available for an increased fee of $150.
**No refunds for individual cancellations will be given.
***Financial assistance may be available on a case-by-case basis.
Are we going to be silent the whole weekend?
Yes, the only opportunities for speaking will be in common prayer/Mass and in confession. There are no opportunities to discuss with other retreaters.
Will I have free time?
Retreaters are advised not to bring any books, computers, or other work, or even leisure items to the retreat. The only book you will need is the Bible and a journal to write in. Please do not bring anything else that you plan to read/work on. Give the whole weekend to God.
When will we leave and return?
We will depart campus by 6pm on Friday and return by 2pm on Sunday. Dinner (pizza) will be served on Friday night, but lunch will not be served on Sunday.
Do I have to share a room?
No, you can have a private room if you are willing to pay the additional cost.
Can I register and then back out later?
It is not recommended that you do this as refunds are not available as the retreat center will charge us even if you do not show up. Due to this, you must pay in advance.
