A Busy Catholic's Online Retreat is designed for adults, young adults, couples, families, friends and members of small faith-sharing groups who are too busy to participate in a traditional weekend or weeklong retreat outside the home. It is a seven day retreat experience which takes place in the midst of everyday life.
During a Busy Catholic's Online Retreat, the individual's time for prayer and quiet reflection takes place in their home, work, or another environment of their choosing, at whatever time of day is convenient for them.
• Participants register for the retreat and are given access to daily prayers and reflection material posted online.
• During the next seven days, participants reflect privately each day on a scripture passage or spiritual reading and on the reflection questions assigned by the retreat guide.
• Participants may share their thoughts and insights online with other participants.
• If helpful, participants may arrange to meet privately with the retreat guide following the final group discussion.
Adults and young adults of any age are welcome to participate in a Busy World Retreat. This is an opportunity for anyone who wishes to spend some time reflecting on God's presence and goodness in their lives. You do not need to be actively participating in a faith community, and you do not need to be familiar with the format or techniques of spiritual reflection in order to grow from a Busy World Retreat. What you need is a desire to do this, and the commitment to spend 20 to 30 minutes each day in quiet reflection in an environment of your choice.
