About this Program

I have always loved a window, especially an open one.  –Wendell Berry

Pause in the middle of the year with a summer day of reflection. This one-day guided silent personal retreat is based on four movements of a modified Ignatian Examen to help you discern God’s presence and direction in your life events. Using art, music, and the metaphor of “windows” as inspiration, Rosanne Michaels (Faith Formation Minister, St. James Cathedral) will offer a brief presentation on each movement, followed by guidelines for prayer, and abundant time for personal reflection and journaling.
