Remember the Embers (Ember Days) of September

with Traditional Latin Mass

Fr. Craig Clinch
Sept. 20-22, 2024

3-Day Weekend Silent Retreat

What are ember days?  How and why does the church celebrate them?  What do they have to do with our rural and agrarian heritage?  How does the Church recognize that with the change of seasons and bringing in the harvest, we need to give thanks and renew our hearts?

Join us to learn how the Ember Days help us make use of all four forms of prayer: adoration, contrition, thanksgiving and supplication.

Retreat starts 8:00pm Friday night with Rosary and Mass, and ends Sunday with Mass and noon lunch.  Masses for the Ember Days will be Traditional Latin Mass.  Retreat is open to men or women of all ages.

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.
