The Retreat and Conference Center at Bon Secours will host Ash Wednesday: Day of Contemplative Prayer Retreat, a day of silence guided by Sister Bernadette Claps, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Feb. 18.

The public is welcome to join in this day of prayer as the Lenten season begins. "The atmosphere for the day will be reverent silence, which allows us to more deeply encounter God and be attuned to God's promptings," according to the center's website. "It will begin with reflective input by Sister Bernie, followed by time for private prayer and reflection, lunch in silence, the option of walking the labyrinth or beautiful grounds, journaling or just relaxing with God. There will be the opportunity to attend Ash Wednesday liturgy with distribution of ashes, if you wish. The day will close with us coming together to name the blessings of the day and for a closing prayer."
