2-Night Men’s Retreat: Lent – Journey Toward The Paschal Mystery (CANCELLED)
March 20 @ 6:00 pm - March 22 @ 12:00 pm$295
Directed by Fr. Joe Lingan, SJ
Lent is a sacred time of invitation to better know God and our self before God. Lent is a time of journeying or pilgrimage of sort. A journey toward the One who loves us more than we can presently imagine. This Sacred Season invites one to an honest self-awareness and to a recognition of the human desire to know the kind, loving, and merciful God and to a depth of relationship with God that both humbles and heartens enabling one to be their truest and authentic self. This retreat will invite participants to explore one’s desire for a more genuine understanding of and relationship with God through prayer and reflection on The Paschal Mystery of Jesus.
This is a silent retreat. Retreatants are expected to maintain a sacred silence throughout the retreat, including at meals, unless otherwise noted.
