2015 Contemplative Priest Retreat
Tuesday - Monday, January 6-13, 2015 / Winter Priestly Retreat
Our yearly winter priestly retreat offering in 2015 will be January 6-13 and will be with the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City. It will be a silent retreat consisting of six full days. Arriving Monday night, January 5th, 2015, the retreat will begin Tuesday morning, January 6, and run until Monday night, January 13th.
The retreat will feature a daily conference and one-on-one daily spiritual direction. The lead director is Fr. Casey Beaumier, S.J., of Boston College. Fr. Beaumier is affiliated with the Institute for Priestly Formation based at Creighton University in Omaha. Fr. Tom Griesen is also confirmed as a spiritual director (formerly director of spirituality at Conception Seminary). Fr. Xavier Nacke, OSB, will also join us (spiritual director, Conception Seminary).
We will only be able to accommodate a limited number of priests. If you are interested in participating, please make a reservation as soon as possible by contacting Fr. Steven Bird of the Oklahoma City Archdiocese through email at
. Because of the extra costs associated with this type of retreat, the cost will be $930 per priest. If the costs are prohibitive, please contact Fr. Ken VanHaverbeke. Scholardships are available through the Spiritual Life Center.
This is a unique opportunity. Please contact either Fr. Bird of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City or Fr. Ken VanHaverbeke if you have any questions.
