2-Night Recovery Retreat: Hey God, can we talk? The AA Eleventh Step Prayer
December 13, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - December 15, 2019 @ 12:00 pm$200
Directed by Fr. Peter Fink, SJ
Come and Deepen your meeting with God, as you understand God, through the prayers that we make: the Serenity Prayer, the Lord’s Prayer and especially the prayer of St. Francis, “Make us an instrument of your Peace!”.
Enjoy this spiritual part of our recovery. Let the desires of your Higher Power reveal themselves once again that such desires become more deeply your own.
This is a silent retreat. Retreatants are expected to maintain a sacred silence throughout the retreat, including at meals, unless otherwise noted.
