- Into The Deep, Fr. Jeremiah Myriam Shryock
Fr. Jeremiah Myriam Shryock, CFR entered the Community of Franciscan Friars of the Renewal in 2002. In 2011, Timothy Cardinal Dolan ordained him as a priest at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City. He currently lives in his community’s House of Prayer in Monticello, NY where his primary ministry is prayer, spiritual direction, preaching parish missions and facilitating both group and private retreats throughout the country.
The retreat, Into the Deep: Growing in Intimacy with God through silent prayer is geared towards a deeper encounter with God in silence. The retreat will include 3 hours of silent prayer together in common. It is recommended that those who attend these retreats already have a regular prayer life and are comfortable with silence.
