About This Event

For persons who have experienced a significant loss in their life.

                                                                                                                                    Do not let your hearts be troubled

                                                                                                                                                                                   John 12:11

                                                                                                                                                Come to me…

                                                                                                                                                                  And I will give you rest

                                                                                                                                                                                    Matt 11:2-30

This Day of Prayer and Reflection offers you peace and support

that will help you deal with loss as it affects your life.

The day will be directed by Deacon David Schaffer

and will provide time for personal prayer as well as sharing.

The Eucharist will be celebrated by Fr. Frank Doyle, OSA.

                  Author Rev. John S. Dunne, as quoted in Praying Our Goodbyes, believes that, at every turn in the road, a new illuminating is needed to find the way and a new kindling is needed to follow the way.

Grief has a way of plundering our prayer life often leaving us feeling empty and alone. Join us for a day of prayer and reflection away from the busyness of daily life.

Deacon David Schaffer, MS, a Pastoral Counselor will present the workshop and share his personal journey having lost his wife and son in the same year.

Come join us in this peace filled and prayerful setting at St. Raphaela Center.

  Write a review - tell others about your experience.

Thank you!

We're glad you've joined our retreat community. See you around :)

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Because I sometimes work up to 16 hours a day, and need time to stop and breathe. Mary

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
