Directed Retreats

St. Francis of the Woods spiritual renewal center offers directed retreats for individuals. Directed retreats are led and facilitated by our Director and Bishop, Fr. Aidan Wilson, and provide the opportunity for multiple sessions with a trained spiritual director and the cultivation of contemplative practices to enrich your spiritual life. Directed retreats involve intention setting for your time here, participation in community life, periods of silence and fasting, and integration to help you take peace with you back into everyday life. Retreats can be tailored to individual spiritual paths and backgrounds. The Holy Mysteries or Sacraments are also available upon request. There are two scheduling options for directed retreats.  

Please contact us by phone or email if you have any questions or would like to book a directed retreat.
