Contemplative Prayer Retreat April 2022
"And Jesus said to his disciples, 'Come away by yourselves to a remote place and rest for a while.” For many people were coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat." ~ Mark 6:31
In these noisy and turbulent times, Christ our Lord invites us to abandon ourselves into his loving care. He encourages us to cast our burdens on him and find rest for our souls.
But how, exactly, do we do that?
We cordially invite you to join us for a retreat designed to answer that question. Come away with us, slow down, and breathe. Come and simply be with God in solitude. Listen to him in silence. Follow Jesus into a deserted place and allow God to reveal himself as the Good Father.
