Options for Retreats
There are other Sisters of Charity spiritual directors available for directed retreats at the scheduled retreat times or other re-treat times. Both the conference and directed retreats can be made for a shorter number of days if so desired. If choosing a director for a directed retreat other than those listed in this brochure, contact the Sister to make sure she is available during your requested days before sending in your registration. If you would like assistance in identifying other directors, call 513-347-5453 for information or email us at email@example.com.
Most people who desire to make a retreat want to step aside from the busy life they lead and spend some time looking within, looking at their relationship with God, and what is happening in their lives. All adults are welcome to participate in our retreats regardless of religious affiliation, vocation or gender. Private retreats and individually directed retreats can be scheduled throughout the year. Call the Spirituality Center director, S. Marty Dermody, SC, at 513-347-5453 for assistance.
