Thomas Merton Retreat in Kansas

Thomas Merton: A Mystical Guide for You Who Seek “MORE”
Sheila Carroll, OSF
March 27-28, 2009, Friday 7:00 pm to Saturday 3:30 pm
Merton leads us to a new dimension of prayer urging us to contemplate God by moving deeply into interior prayer. His search for God involved his search for his true self—the self that God had called him to be. Although the journey is often difficult and tiring, Merton writes, “We will find that, with determination and grace, we can touch and be touched by God, if only for a moment.”
Retreatants are invited for Evening Praise in the Monastery at 5:30 pm on Friday.
Fee: $100 (Deposit $20) Register by March 20. Register online.

Sister Sheila has taught at high school and college level and has served as campus minister at the University of Missouri and the University of Colorado. Her teaching career has taken her to the Indian Missions of South Dakota. For the past ten years she has drawn on her graduate studies of mysticism and prayer of the saints to give retreats and talks on the mystics.
