Poustinia Retreat

March 10-12, 2023

Loyola Retreat House, Green, OH

Our Poustinia Retreat will be 24 hours of silence and solitude.


Poustinia Retreat is an opportunity to go into the desert (Poustinia mean “desert” in Russian) where the altered physical environment can have a great spiritual effect. Being stripped of many physical comforts, we gain greater access to our deeper need for the Lord. 

We will have three meetings which will prepare us for retreat. We will cover the topics of fasting, Scripture, journaling, icons, and silence (meetings to take place from 7-9 at St. Basil's Annex).
