“Silence is the environmental condition most conducive to contemplation, to listening to God, and to meditation. The very fact of experiencing silence and letting ourselves be “filled”, so to speak, with silence, disposes us to prayer. God speaks in silence, but we must know how to listen.” Pope Benedict XVI

Each retreat seeks to shed the light of the Gospel on the experience of life and so renew the joy of believing. Father John Williams, a close friend and seminary classmate of the late Father Matthew Bradley, will be preaching a six-day retreat in June. Father Williams has made many Foyer retreats, both at Chateauneuf and in Scituate.

• The Foyer proposes an offering of $50 to $100 per day for the six day retreat and between $125 and $250 for the weekend of prayer. (Inability to make this offering should not keep someone from making the retreat; please consult the Foyer.)

• There is train service (the Greenbush line) from South Station, Boston, to North Scituate where we meet retreatants.
