Weekend Individually Directed Retreat


The tranquil environment of the Villa Maria grounds offers the perfect background for this retreat.
In meeting the director each day the retreatant is aided in: 

  • Noticing the reality of God’s presence and activity
  • Coming to trust what has been noticed
  • Responding to this presence and activity. 

Prayerful reflection, often with Sacred Scripture, in an environment of complete silence is the usual setting for this process. There is no preset pattern for a directed retreat. The director and the retreatant try to be sensitive and responsive to where the retreatant is in his or her journey with God. The director’s role is to support the retreatant in the movements of his or her journey as these movements emerge in the retreatant’s prayer.
Director for this retreat: Ardath Blake, HM has received training and supervision in spiritual direction through the St. Bueno Spiritual Exercise Centre, Asaph, Wales, United Kingdom, the Center for Spirituality and Lay Ministry of Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Connecticut and at Loyola House in Guelph, Ontario. Ardath also has a MA in Theology and MS in Education and experience in parish pastoral ministry.
