Into the Quiet: Guided Quiet and Reflection for Young Adults

  Get Directions



Join other young adults (ages 19-39) for a day of guided quiet and reflection, led by Sr Madeline Mary, CSM of St. Mary’s Episcopal Convent in Sewanee, Tennessee. This is the first of four quiet days in 2019. The time will provide space to breathe, pause and look within in the beautiful setting of the Texas Hill Country. Into the Quiet is open to any young adult regardless of experience with quiet prayer. We are bringing in the experts to guide us to the richness and gift that quiet provides.

Thanks to the 787 Collective participation, Into the Quiet is free; but we do need an RSVP.

Please RSVP or send questions to the Rev. Shannon Preston at shannon@gsaustin.org
