3-Night Retreat: The Way of the Cross: An Encounter With Divine Grace (CANCELLED)
April 2 @ 6:00 pm - April 5 @ 12:00 pm$395
Directed by Fr. Joe Lingan, SJ
The simple and profound truth is that God loves with a love that seeks to embrace, console, forgive, strengthen, inspire, and empower us so that we, too, can view and engage each human being with this same kind of love. Honestly, we all have a way to go . . . and, Lent allows us to acknowledge this truth, and encourages us to move a little further along “that way.” This retreat, through prayer and reflection on “The Way of the Cross,” will explore how Jesus’ remarkable “way” reveals THE way each of us can experience the profoundness of God’s love.
This is a silent retreat. Retreatants are expected to maintain a sacred silence throughout the retreat, including at meals, unless otherwise noted.
