Julie McElmurry, Founder of Franciscan Passages: "...I relish the opportunity to share what I have learned through my studies at the Franciscan Institute. While it is true that God has not called me to life as a a vowed Franciscan, He has ignited my heart and mind with a love for the texts.

Find God in all things...
Pat is a spiritual director who marvels at the profound love our God has for each of Her/His creations. He leads retreats that focus on deepening our experience of God’s love and discerning how best to live out of this experience.
Patrick Cleary-Burns is available to lead the following retreat programs:
- Individually Directed Retreats A Time for Discernment
Directed retreats provide an ideal setting for anyone facing a significant transition in life and desiring to follow God more faithfully. I utilize the wisdom of the Spiritual Exercises and prayer activities from Elizabeth Liebert’s The Way of Discernment to guide the retreatant through a prayerful discernment. My 2012 schedule is: Campion Center in MA June 1-9, Jesuit Retreat Center in OH June 26-July 3 and July 13-15, and Loyola Retreat House in OH July 15-22.
- Retreats Within Daily Life for Individuals
God wants to meet us where we live. Most retreats expect you to go away to a retreat house. This retreat offers a full experience of the St. Ignatius’ Spiritual Exercises for the retreatant at home. Pat meets weekly with each retreatant in person or by SKYPE.
- Ignatius of Loyola: The Accessible Mystic
After his mid-life conversion and transformation, Saint Ignatius was graced with a life of mystical intimacy with the Holy Trinity. This weekend retreat focuses on our experiences of Ignatius’ mystical graces about the Trinity, Creation, Mary the Mother of Christ, the Humanity of Jesus, and the Eucharist. This retreat was piloted in Ohio and Indiana in 2011.
- New Year’s Eve Retreat
The new year provides us with a great opportunity to look back over the last year to find where God has been active in our life and look with hope to the year ahead. I lead this retreat every year. In 2012-13 it will be at Loyola Retreat House in Clinton OH. Where next?
- Celtic Spirituality - Listening for the Heartbeat of God
We can learn a great deal from the faith of the men and women of the Celtic isles who lived active, contemplative lives in constant awareness of God’s love and presence in all of creation. This retreat explores the Celtic practices of listening and watching for the Triune God and how these practices can strengthen our own relationship with God and our world. This retreat is offered at Living Waters Center in Maggie Valley, NC May 14-18.
- Parish and Seasonal Retreats
I offer a variety of Lenten, Advent, and Pentecost retreats in retreat centers and parishes.
