Spirituality Center Retreats and Programs

Most people who desire to make a retreat want to step aside from the busy life they lead and spend some time looking within, looking at their relationship with God, and what is happening in their lives. All adults are welcome to participate in our retreats regardless of religious affiliation, vocation or gender. Call the Spirituality Center director, S. Marty Dermody, SC, at 513-347-5453 for assistance.

There are other Sisters of Charity spiritual directors available for directed retreats at the scheduled retreat times. Both the conference and directed retreats can be made for a shorter number of days if so desired. If choosing a director for a directed retreat other than those listed in this brochure, contact the Sister to make sure she is available during your requested days before sending in your registration. If you would like assistance in identifying other directors, call 513-347-5453 for information or email us at spirituality.center@srcharitycinti.org.

All retreatants must send proof of vaccination. Please make sure you bring a mask in case they are required.

Introduction to the Enneagram

The Enneagram, originating in the Sufi spiritual tradition, describes nine personality types. Each of these nine types perceives life differently, has different habitual mental patterns, and makes choices out of the perception. The enneagram provides helpful self-knowledge and understanding of others, and may lead to growth in spiritual freedom.
