“Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.” – Mark 1:35
Jesus regularly set apart time for prayer and personal communion with the Father. It was his lifeline for his work and life.
Many of us desire to spend more time with God. But we may not stop to realize that—staggeringly—the reverse is also true:
God deeply desires to spend time with us.
In our non-stop, frenetic culture, this can be a very challenging thing to do. We have so many responsibilities and distractions constantly demanding our attention, it is often hard to find the time.
As a church that has been profoundly shaped by the Contemplative Tradition, we have discovered that God graciously enters into the space we give to him. And, we love helping others learn how to make room for the Lord in their lives through silence, solitude, and prayer.
Through our partnership with Soul Care Seattle, we regularly provide guided full-weekend and half-day silent retreats.
Full Weekend Retreats: November 4-6, 2022 and February 24 – 26, 2023
These retreats are our opportunity to rest in the beauty and quiet of Archbishop Brunett Retreat Center, to seek the face of God, and find yourselves held in Jesus' loving gaze. This is good for the soul. Really good! Participants will meet one-on-one with our retreat leaders on Saturday and Sunday as a way to check in, see how the retreat is going, and to provide prayer materials for your retreat. There are trails nearby, amazing views of Puget Sound, warm fireplaces, and your own bedroom/bathroom for your privacy and relaxation.
"God never tires of giving, nor can He exhaust His mercies. Let us not tire of receiving." St Teresa of Avila
