Event description
This retreat will be led by Fr Ron Rolheiser OMI

About this event

This retreat is designed for more mature seekers who desire to mindfully embrace the challenges and opportunities of aging and diminishment by accessing the deep wisdom embedded in the world’s great mystical and contemplative traditions.

The goal of the Foresters program is to prepare participants to live wisely and well during their remaining years so that in the words of Henri Nouwen, “they might be able to give both their life and their death away” for the sake of the world.

"We lack a developed spirituality for the second-half of life. Setting itself within the archetypal image of Forest-Dwelling wherein spiritual seekers withdraw into the deep forest to live there and be instructed by the Elders, this event will draw on scripture, the mystics, select spiritual writers, and the best in secular literature to offer some spiritual and psychological counsel for our wisdom years."  – Ron Rolheiser, OMI

Our Vision 

Profoundly respecting the dignity and sacredness of each person, 

we seek to grow close to Christ and make him known

through our way of life and ministry. 

We commit ourselves principally to those on the margins of church and society.

We implement this vision through a commitment to justice,

peace and integrity of creation, adult faith formation and outreach to faith communities.
