Each summer we set time aside for religious women. It may coincide with a summer individually directed retreat session, but everyone in the house is on silent retreat. The leader of the sisters' retreat normally gives two presentations each day. There is ample opportunity for reconciliation or conferences with the leader or our staff. Various prayer services or tapes are offered to coordinate with the topics of the day. The rest of the day is left for private prayer and reflection.
