The Retreat is silent directed. It is at the St. John the Baptist Retreat Center in New Baltimore, PA. Participants can come for any number of days (3, 5, 8 whatever) so people come and go all week. The directors are all CLC people and familiar with the CLC way of life. The thing that makes it unique is the option to meet in the evening for a sharing of the fruits of the day.
So the dates reserved at the Center are from dinner July 16 to Lunch July 23, however, the participant chooses when to come and go.
Since it is silent and directed, there is no theme. Most people work on some aspect of the exercises. However, one time I used the General Principles and Charism. Contact person - put me down because sometimes Al is not prompt in answering.
