Celebrating 35 Years: Our Amazing Journey of Contemplative Prayer, Life and Growth Retreat

AUGUST 8th-11th

Four Day Centering Prayer Retreat

Come celebrate Contemplative Outreach St. Louis 35 th Anniversary with a four day retreat led by Patricia Johnson, who worked closely with Fr. Thomas Keating at St. Benedict Monastery in
Snowmass, CO since 1984.

“We wait patiently; in silence, openness, and quiet expectancy; motionless within and
without.  We surrender to the attraction to be still, to be loved, just to be.”

Fr. Thomas Keating

Throughout the weekend we will share daily Centering Prayer sessions and provide opportunities for silence interspersed with Pat’s reflections about the transformative movements of 40 years of Contemplative Outreach Ltd. and her observations of the growth,
challenges, set-backs and joys of the contemplative prayer journey.

Long term practitioners and those new to the practice are welcome.

Join us at: Mercy Retreat and Conference Center, 2039 N. Geyer Rd, St Louis, MO 63131 in west St. Louis County.

The campus is conveniently located off a major highway and within a 20 minute taxi or ride-share from Lambert St. Louis International Airport. Parking is free.
