Priest, Prophet, King - Orphan, Stranger, Widow

Redeeming Heartache and Trauma, Lies and Sin

Fr. Adam Sughroue
Aug. 18-20, 2023

3-Day Weekend Silent Retreat for Men and Women

with Fr. Adam Sughroue

Retreat starts Friday with rosary and Mass at 8:00pm, ends Sunday with Mass and Noon lunch.

Retreatants will consider how your experiences and traumas have contributed to your identifying with an “orphan,” “stranger,” or “widow” experience. You will reflect on how your responses to past events play out in your life and affect you and your relationships.

Learn to turn that betrayal of an orphan into the faith of a priest, the alienation and powerlessness of a stranger into the truth of a prophet, and the grief of a widow into the love of a king.  (Based on resources and podcasts from the Allender Center, where Dr. Dan Allender and Rachael Clinton Chen candidly discuss the deep places of heartache and hope that are rarely addressed in our culture.)

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.

Our Lady of Good Counsel Retreat House offers a sanctuary of prayer and recollection on a spacious acreage near Waverly. There are 50 single rooms, each with a private bath.  A few double rooms are available upon request.

We want our retreats to be accessible to everyone, please consider an additional donation, or contact the Retreat House to inquire about financial assistance or if your parish pays part of the cost. If the retreat you’re interested in is full, contact us to be put on a waiting list.  Airport transportation to/from LNK or OMA is also available upon request.
