Summer Retreat at Founders Hollow

Here at Founder's Hollow last week 26 Marianist high school young men took the opportunity to enjoy the silence at our summer retreat. 

We know that quiet is necessary for us to know who we are and who God is.

In fact, well-known monk and author Thomas Merton wrote that “the peace of solitude” is necessary in order to experience a full life. “All … need enough silence and solitude in their lives,” he wrote, “to enable the deep inner voice of their own true self to be heard…”

This summer retreat allowed us to withdraw from the busyness of summer in order to reflect on and deepen our relationship with God.
