30 Day Program
The retreat experience begins with two days of preparation and concludes with a day of reflection. During the retreat itself, the retreatant prays four or five times a day, sees a spiritual director once a day, and participates in daily Eucharist.
Normally, retreatants will have made at least one silent, directed retreat (eight days or 19th annotation) before embarking on the 30-Day; it is also expected that they will have already engaged in ongoing spiritual direction.
The application process involves a few steps. Please complete the application, available at www.jrclosaltos.org. It is a Word document which you may save to your computer and complete at your convenience. When it is complete, please email it as an attachment to [email protected].
With your application we ask for a $600 deposit, which you may pay by using the 'Register Now' button below and then choosing the "Deposit Option." You may also send the completed application with a check through the mail.
We will review your application and be in touch within 14 days. If your application is not approved, your deposit will be fully refunded. If it is accepted, the remaining balance of $3350 will be due 30 days prior to the retreat. If you need to cancel your retreat once you have been accepted, the retreat fee can either be held by the Center to be used on a future retreat or a refund can be issued minus a $50 processing fee.
