Married Couples Retreat

February 8-10, 2019    


Love, Marriage and the Rule of Saint Benedict

Presented by Tim (SJU '77) and Carrie (CSB '88) Sellner    

Dedicate a weekend as a couple without the distractions of daily life.  This retreat is an opportunity to focus intentionally on your relationship by listening, sharing, and praying with each other while exploring love, marriage, and the Rule of Saint Benedict.  There will be time to enjoy the beauty of the Saint John’s Abbey Arboretum while hiking to the Stella Maris Chapel, praying in the Abbey and University Church, or simply enjoying the view from the Saint John’s Abbey Guesthouse.  Married couples of all ages are welcome to participate, pray, and reconnect. 

A three-fold cord is not easily broken.  Ecclesiastes 4:12
