Fr. Michael Voithofer is the founder and spiritual director for Ablaze House of Prayer. Fr. Michael offers silent retreats at the Ablaze House and is also the director of the Omaha Encounter School of Ministry. Go to to learn more about this Eucharistic Revival ministry.

Magnificat is a woman-to-woman ministry encouraging a lively, active faith in the Lord, a love for Mary and the Church, and a growing openness to the Holy Spirit through a deeper commitment of their lives to Jesus as Lord. They also seek to impart the Holy Spirit to one another by their love, service and sharing the good news of salvation.  Read more about Magnificat and its activities.

The retreat will include praise and worship music, time to receive prayer, and opportunities for both discussion and silent reflection.

In-person at the Retreat House, the retreats include meditations by the retreat master, the sacraments of Eucharist and Reconciliation, extended opportunities for silence and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, and other devotions.
