HIGHER... ABOVE THE CLOUDS
...BUT DEEPER WITHIN
At one time or another, every child asks the question: "Where is God?" Most of us will answer: "Well, He is in Heaven." The Child might pursue his inquiry by asking: "Then, where is heaven?" More likely, most of us would point to the sky - heaven... "it's up there!" Jesus used the same geographical references. The good go to the Father and the evil go down to the nether world.
Each person, with any amount of faith, spends life on earth searching for God. We discover in our spiritual search that He is not up or down. Cosmonauts have yet to discover Him in the out-rebounds of space. However, they have found the glory of God there.
Every honest personal search will discover God within. Our website presents a series of Retreat opportunities - Weekend Retreats and Days of Recollection to help you discover the God within ever more deeply. I invite you to take the time to retreat from your busy schedule. Take the time to learn, to pray and to listen to the God within. It's in that deepened relationship with Him that one discovers LIFE.
If you attend three 1-day programs during a given year...
The staff has been really very welcoming. "At the Feet of The Master: Bible and Weel-being" is a very inspiring and useful workshop. Thank you Fr. Flavio and Sally for doing this program on Bible and Psychology. I look forward for more days like this.
I always look forward for the women's retreat. The grounds of La Salette Retreat Center are very peaceful and beautiful. It is a great opportunity to connect with myself, other women and God. Great team, and great programs!
Great presentations made my weekend memorable! This is my 6th time at La Salette Retreat Center. Great and very friendly staff. They know how to make you feel at home. May God bless all of you. Thank you!
I heard about La Salette Retreat Center from a friend. I will definitely come back. The presenters were dynamic and captivating; The entire staff was very friendly and always willing to respond to the needs of the group.
