Lay Carmelite Silent Retreat
In the early 1600’s the French province of Touraine led the revival and renewal of the Carmelite Order. It was a belated reform based on the prayer system of Teresa of Avila, and a recovery from the ghastly Wars of Religion in France. With good leadership and holy writers like John of St. Samson, the principles of stricter observance eventually spread to the entire Order.
Join us for this silent retreat, open to all.
Led by Fr. Leo Glueckert, O. Carm.
