Transformation in Times of Uncertainty

It seems as if everything we thought we knew about how the world works is being turned upside down.  It is a time of great uncertainty.  What hope does a spirituality rooted in the Gospel offer us? 

Through presentations and processes rooted in individual and communal contemplation, this weekend will explore the power of contemplation as a transformative practice so necessary in our world today.

Friday, May 18, - Sunday, May 20, 2018
The retreat begins at 7:00pm on Friday and concludes with the noon meal on Sunday.
Cost of $225 includes $50 non-refundable deposit, overnight accommodations and meals.


Nancy Sylvester, IHM, is a former President of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) and Vice President of her community, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Monroe, Michigan.  Her experience also includes leadership through the national Catholic social justice lobby NETWORK, as well as numerous other organizations nationwide.  Stemming from those experiences, Nancy founded the Institute for Communal Contemplation and Dialogue in 2002.   She currently serves as its President and brings to this project her commitment to dialogue, collaboration, contemplation, and an understanding of transformation through the lenses of Catholic social justice teaching and the emerging universe story.
