About the event
Join Glenda Prosser at Sister Eveleen Retreat House for a 7-day silent retreat. This retreat will be held in complete silence, with each day following a gentle rhythm of regular contemplative prayer, shared meals, and individual spiritual direction. This is a unique opportunity to deepen your relationship with God in a beautiful coastal environment. Retreatants can choose between staying in the larger main house rooms or opt for a more monastic experience in our accommodation annex at the back of the property.
To register please book a 'ticket'. An invoice for the deposit will be sent out on registration (ignore the fact it says the tickets are free).
Cost (all-inclusive): $560 (Main House)
If you wish to attend, but the cost is prohibitive for you, please contact the House Director (Eddie) to see how we might assist you.
