2-Night Retreat: Finding God In All Things
July 31 @ 6:00 pm - August 2 @ 12:00 pm$295
Everything in creation is given to us from God, and everything in creation is there to lead us back to God. God is in Creation. God is working within Creation. Everything and every happening in this universe is but an act of a loving God. It is easy to find God when things are bright, and less easy to find God when things are not. But if you look deeply into anything, and if you are capable of seeing, you will find a loving God there to be with you. On this Feast Day celebration of St. Ignatius, bring the things in your life, be they good or bad. Let God draw you into them where you will find him there within. Limited to the first 22 registrants. Advance registration required.
