In the beginning of Lent, join us for Mo-Ranch’s Silent Directed Retreat in the quiet wide-open spaces of the Texas Hill Country for a weekend of prayer.
Take time away from the noise and distraction of everyday life, to rest and listen for God. God longs for relationship with us—a loving, growing relationship. Prayer is relationship, and silence is simply making a space in silence from each other for us to listen to God, but not be silent with God.
Retreat time will be spent nurturing your relationship with God, alone, through prayer, scripture, exploring walking paths, journaling and in silence. Retreat leaders, Gail Pitt and Kathy Koellein—both spiritual directors from Dovehouse Ministries—will be available to discuss what is surfacing in your prayer, your heart and your relationship with God.
Be still and know that I am God. Psalm 46:10

Schedule coming soon
The weekend will begin with a gathering meeting where you will meet one another, and the directions for prayer are given and any questions are answered. Then we enter into silence—not with God, but from each other. During this retreat, you will meet with a spiritual director daily to process times of prayer and to mutually discern the movements of the Holy Spirit, what is coming up in prayer and in your relationship with God. The retreat will adjourn on Sunday with a time of sharing of the graces that have been given.
