Men's Retreat Fall 2018
Nov
16
to Nov 18

Men's Retreat Fall 2018

The theme for this year’s retreats is Lectio Divina – holy reading; a method of prayer the monks employ daily. You may have encountered it on past retreats, but this weekend we will examine it more closely, understand how better to do it, and how to make it an important part of your daily spiritual life. We will learn how the Word of God anchors us in life amidst the storms that often come up. We will learn that prayer needs to be a “mysterious encounter” with the living Lord. We will come upon His majestic love and care for us in the ancient monastic practice of lectio divina.

Architecture for Liturgy 2016

Father Daniel McCarthy of the Abbey presents the Liturgy Week Architecture for Liturgy on 16-20 January 2017, at the Spiritual Life Center, Wichita, Kansas. He answers the question “What is a church?” by pointing to personal illumination in the baptistery and font, ongoing maturation by the Word of God in the hall and at the ambo, leading to interpersonal communion around the Lord’s table, the altar-ciborium on the dais. These are richly illustrated with photos of churches from Italy, the UK and USA. The week also includes a pictorial journey through the ancient basilicas of Rome. Father Daniel presents the results of his doctoral work by discussing the design of many churches since the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965). The liturgy week includes visits to four selected churches with guided discussions of them.

All Souls Commemoration

 

Join the monks for a special Compline service on All Souls day.  We will begin with Compline in the Abbey church at 7:30 followed by a candlelight procession to the Abbey Cemetery.  Participation in this service can serve as part of a method to receive a special indulgence as part of the year of mercy.

 

 

Perform a spiritual or corporal work of mercy. Pope Francis said that an indulgence may be obtained when a member of the “faithful personally performs” one of these merciful acts. 

“The experience of mercy, indeed, becomes visible in the witness of concrete signs as Jesus himself taught us,” he said.
