Almost Heaven Retreats 2018

With anticipation, we are preparing for our 2018 Almost Heaven Summer Retreat at The West Virginia Institute for Spirituality, located at 1601 Virginia Street, East, Charleston, WV 25311.  Click here to download the Almost Heaven Retreat Registration Brochure.  Retreats will be offered from May 25, 2018 through July 15, 2018.

Our directors this year are: Sr. Carole Riley, CDP, Rev. Bill Petro, Sr. Molly Maloney, OSF, Sr. Ritamary Schulz, ASCJ, Rev. Mr. Thomas Soper, Dr. Elaine Soper, Sr. Mary Irene Sorber, SCC, Sr. Rose Ann Hefner, CSJ, Bob Sylvester, Kathy Lester, Eileen Chwalibog, Cynthia Neely, Leanna Mock Lake, Gerri Wright, Elizabeth Deal, Ann Winton and Donna Manko-Kochirka.

As you know the directed retreat is a silent time in which the retreatant is guided through a prayer experience by a personal spiritual director.  The retreatant meets daily with the director to reflect upon the prayer experience and to discern in the light of the experience how to proceed.  The material for prayer is Scripture.  If you have never made a directed retreat, a Friday evening through Sunday morning is a recommended introduction.  A weekend retreat is helpful in preparing retreatants to make longer retreats such as a 3 to 8 day retreat, or the thirty day experience.

We hope you will register soon so we can guarantee a space for you. Please note there is an additional $20.00 charge for registering after May 11, 2018.  If you would like more information or the opportunity to talk more about this, call (304) 345-0926.  Our facility accommodates only 15 retreatants at a time.  Our meals always include a vegan option and the facility is air conditioned.

We look forward to welcoming you this summer,

Sister Carole Riley, CDP, Ph.D.
Executive Director
West Virginia Institute for Spirituality
