The Retreat: Schedule 2017 – Dorothy Day’s Favorite Retreat

Encounter with Silence Retreat

“Encounter with Silence” is a six-day retreat, developed by Onesimus Lacouture, S.J., and formerly given by Father John Hugo. Perhaps the most famous lover of the retreat is the Servant of God, Dorothy Day. She made the retreat more than 20 times and wrote of it often. Day said it was “like hearing the Gospel for the first time.” It draws its power from uncompromising reflection upon Scripture, in four one-hour conferences daily.

The Lacouture/Hugo retreat will be given at the following times and places this year:
