2-Night Retreat: New Year Reflections, As God Sees You
January 24 @ 6:00 pm - January 26 @ 12:00 pm$295
Directed by Marian Monahan, BA
Where is your focus in 2020? Lose weight, exercise more, pray more, more of this, less of that? Sometimes our New Year’s Resolutions concentrate so much on what is lacking in our lives and in ourselves that we don’t recognize the beauty of who we already are and what we already have. The Spiritual Exercises by St. Ignatius of Loyola offer a centuries-old, tried-and-true way to authentically examine who we are in the eyes of God – a God who delights in us and loves us unconditionally. “I am fearfully and wonderfully made!” This is your inherent dignity, but owning and living that truth takes time. Let this silent retreat be your opportunity get away with the One who loves you like no other.
This is a silent retreat. Retreatants are expected to maintain a sacred silence throughout the retreat, including at meals, unless otherwise noted.
